- Before I Was Me
- A wonderful illustrated book
Before I was me,
When I was still with God,
I asked Him, “Who will I become?”
“Oh, my little one,” He replied,
“I have great plans for you!
I have chosen you to be
a very important person whom I will always love.”
Thus begins a charming odyssey of self-discovery, as, in conversation with God,
the child imagines himself as:
. . . an ASTRONAUT going off to work each morning in a rocket,
stopping halfway to Mars for milk and cookies . . .
. . . a BAKER baking yummy treats everyone wants . . .
. . . a FARMER growing food for hungry people
of all nations around the world . . .
. . . a DOCTOR healing giraffes and rabbits, and, yes, people, too . . .
. . . a TEACHER helping boys and bears and gophers and girls
Become the best they can be (while giving hugs to the downcast!) . . .
. . . a PARENT making the lives of children happy and safe; and finally…
. . . a CHILD! . . . important simply for who he is
and WHOM GOD WILL ALWAYS LOVE
