Today is the first day of school.
Life is whirling about me in a very exciting way. Amazing things are happening right now. I am one of the college's four 'poster children' for "older, non-traditional students". I said to someone, "When did non-traditional become a good thing?" and the reply came back, "Nevermind 'non-traditional'...what about the 'older' part?" My response? "Well, yeah, that too." But the interview is done. We have to meet with a photographer. (Erk.) I will put up a link to their website when it is done.
I have had the strangest experiences lately. I am meeting people who tie into other stories, reacquaint me with other times and other people and other places. An amazing synchronicity that I cannot really explain. It's the sense of belonging that I described in the last post. It's that, but it's more also more than that. I'm having some amazing conversations with complete strangers. So amazing that the strangers come back to speak with me again, just as astounded as I am. Flashes of insight. Moments of remarkable beauty. Wonderful opportunities. It's been going on for a couple weeks now. I don't know how to explain it really. I wish I could. It's quite an exciting time.
Last night in bed, I whispered to Tim, "Do you have the feeling that God is at work in our lives right now? Bigtime?" And his answer came back, softly. "Yes."
And so we wait to see what happens next.
