I finally did it. Done. Completed. At least my part of the bargain. I have been MIA for the last few weeks because I have been applying to graduate school. I wanted to finish the application and tell my boss before I started talking about it out in the open. But I am pretty excited about it. I won't find out for a few months whether I am in the program, but it's been an exciting and anxious time. I am thrilled about the possibilities God has in store for me, whether or not I go to graduate school. I will definitely keep you all posted.
On top of this, I have been doing some Bible study and working like crazy. I am currenty in the dining hall during a work event. This time of year is so hard. I get attached to so many of these kids. Ultimately, some of them will make the choice to go somewhere other than MU. While I respect the decision, it's hard for me to see them go when I've worked so hard for so long.
Don't worry; I have been catching up with the Bachelor. It's pretty great. I am a big fan of both of the girls who are left, so I will be excited either way. One funny thing... I am studying Esther as part of the Beth Moore bible study. So much of it kind of reminds me of an ancient bachelor. They do a search for all attractive ladies and then they come "perform" for the king. Seirously... could it BE any more like the Bachelor? It's so interesting to compare. If you haven't read the story of Esther, I highly encourage it. It's fun. It's scandalous (sort of). And it's the only book in which God's name is never mentioned. It's two books before Psalms. Read it. Message me. We'll chat. I hope it blesses you.
I am off to work a little more and then hopefully grab a nap. Enjoy your weekend.
Here's to Esther!
