Oh crap. I start seminary tomorrow.
A little under a year ago, I went for a weekend visit of the school and way back then, it was easy to fill out the application and think, "I have a year to prepare for this."
A year was not long enough.
Or maybe it was too long. I mean. . . I have been putting this off for. . . well. . . a long time. Let's not go there right now.
What was I thinking?
What was God thinking?
This is going to be a strange three years. I am not just stepping out of my comfort here, I am taking a huge flying leap into unknown territory and turning ever aspect of my life and the life of my family on end. It's exactly as unpleasant a feeling as it sounds like it would be. A little exhilarating, but mostly just terrifying.
This is me getting a grip on myself, taking a deep breath and calming down. . .
In the words of Peter Pan. . .
"Away we gooooooooooo!"
