We're Back!

Our promised land experience was quite the trip. We spied out the land and were thrilled to find a great school campus. We were impressed with the students and left inspired by the faculty. The only giant we found was in the form of the tuition amount at the financial planning meeting. Thankfully, the Lord had already encouraged us during our devotion time that morning.

Meg seemed to love it there. Though the proof will be in the pudding. If she takes it upon herself to seek out scholarships and commit herself to some form of community service in the future, we will know that her actions will match her desire to attend there.

It was hard for my husband and I to be around the students and not be caught up in the God driven possibility of their futures. Their joy and love of the Lord was contagious. It was so hard for me to not wish I was their age again, to live my life knowing what and who I know now.

You haven't lived until you have worshipped in a gymnasium of 1,000 young adults.

It brought me to tears.

Glad to read the report. :) Eager to see how the Lord moves in this situation.

Also- my friend Tara and I just talked about how we continue to have dreams that we are back on our college campus looking for our mail keys. Trying to pick them up at the mail window... etc.

Weird how college just ALWAYS stays with you huh?

I bet that was awesome worshipping with all those students.
I can't wait to hear how God works in this situation.
If it's His will He will bless it!

Oh, but to go back to that time with more clarity and wisdom!! And self-assurance and the friends I've gained along the way... uhhhh - yeah. :)
Sounds like she's got her heart set on a great place for her to learn and grow and be among other like-minded students. That's awesome. I just know it'll all work out for her to go there, and you'll all be better for it!

What a great trip. I bet the worship was great! It sounds a lot like how Katelyn felt when she did her college visit. I can't wait to hear how it all transpires!

I'm still praying and agreeing with you for God to open the doors that should open, and close the doors that should be closed!!!

On my knees..for you!
