Tomorrow, Matt and I will be going to Southern. I really am so excited! It’s a fun start to schooling that feels more like the “real deal” with each passing day. I can’t even imagine what Matt must be thinking about starting his final stage of schooling toward getting the degree that the Lord called him to about 3 or so years ago. Only knowing my husband he’d probably have some calm, cool response to my childish joy. You know, some logical, well-thought-out, “well, technically my schooling has been pursuing what God has called me to” or “well, we’ll just see how well I do in Seminary before getting all excited.” But I’m more than happy to run through my clover field with shoes tossed to the wind.
But it’s just neat to start to see the fruit of Matt’s perseverance. And it’s really neat to think of our steps toward God’s purpose in our lives. It kind of makes the sacrifices and the annoyances of the work field feel more worth it in my most impatient moments.
I’m so blessed that God has opened my mind to the joys of what feels like big steps in Him.
Congratulations, Matt, on being ordained and getting ready to finish your undergraduate degree. I am so proud of you.
– I love you.-
