Back to School


And so it begins...
today is orientation at the seminary.
I must admit that I wasn't expecting my first "1st day of school" picture to be of my husband, with not a school bus but a Volkswagen Jetta. But, I do think that my heart will feel much the same when we send Ethan off to school as when I blew Mark a kiss good-bye.

I think I will have more to feel and say about this as our new reality unfolds, but for now the simple reality that he is doing what we felt God invited us to in April '06 is completely amazing. Actually, all that we have experienced over this last year and a half has been part of the invitation. That is a welcome thought because it reminds me of the truth that God is in the journey, He IS the journey, not that He is waiting at the end for us to arrive.

Did you pack a lunch and kiss him on the head when he went out the door? Great talking with him later today. Glad he's here. Glad you're here. Glad the kids are here. God IS up to something!!!
