Seminary visit

Well, our visit to Asbury today went well. Deanne is all excited about starting a Masters in Counseling next spring. I'm looking at the financial side of things and wondering where the money is going to come from -- not for her degree, but for the things we were planning to use her current income for, since her pursuit of a degree will necessitate a bunch of changes in her earnings potential. Well, there's a reason they tell you not to stand up until the ride is over, I guess.

As for her getting the degree and changing her career, I guess I'm for it. I am officially in favor of people listening to God for a call; besides, I have preached for thirty years that God wants to fulfill us, not just fix us, and I have always known that Deanne has never found that fulfillment. Whether she finds it in this program or not is another matter, but you have to read all the way to the last page to find out how the story ends.

Anyway, we'll soldier on the best we can.
