My 18 year old freshman son and 22 year old junior daughter laughed at me when I relayed how excited I was to get my books in the mail for spring semester. They said that feeling would pass. Well, they may be right but I'm on the brink of beginning what I've secretly longed for..a college education.
It's daunting to consider that my study habits formed in high school were ~ well, let's agree to call them lackluster. Have I learned a few things about time management, organization and prioritizing since then? Thank God, yes. He is going to help me remain focused and enthusiastic throughout the next four years. We've made a deal, God and I.
Since being blessed enough to land an administrative position in a church 2 years ago, I have witnessed how God works through ALL people. How it was that I ignored Him for most of my life is beyond comprehension but He's been gently nudging me and peaking my curiosity for years in preparation for a future in ministry in some capacity. Not exactly sure what that looks like but I don't even need to. There is a plan...there is always a plan.
