Except for this year, my two best friends at school are graduating.
And not just leaving the university,
but leaving, leaving.
And foreign country leaving.
I screamed so loud at the ceremony for them that
the toddler being held next to me...
well, let's just say she was a little frightened.
Today I am grateful:
for the impending summer
for Anna, for Sarah
for how well provided for I am
[I mean, moving sure makes you realize how much you have.]
for a job I'm excited for this summer
for the glorious weather
for the university
[singing In Christ Alone and
Great is Thy Faithfulness at graduation was a reminder
of how good we have it here]
for professors that hug students when they walk across the stage
that our Lord is faithful, even if he doesn't come back today.
Praying for those who have built their life upon this date.
Yes, Lord, walking in the way of your laws,
we wait for you:
Your name and renown are the desire of our hearts.
enjoy this beautiful weather!
