I headed in to the U today for the annual part-time instructor's luncheon, and realized I haven't set foot in my office since the beginning of last December. It was semi-surreal to be at the luncheon with my friends Beth, Carrie, and Alisa. We have all been teaching there part-time for years, and we all started as young (young-ish, in my case), married women. Now Beth is pregnant with baby #3, Alisa has 2 girls, and Carrie has a son. I remember when Carrie and Beth started the baby revolution being ecstatic for them but thinking my day would never come. What a difference 3 years makes! I am so glad that I have had the job I had, and that now I can teach one class a semester completely online (which takes only a couple of hours a week) and focus on Ellie and Lynlee.
While thinking about all of this, I was listening to a wonderful album called The Lower Lights. I had a moment on the way home while listening to The Lord Is My Shepherd. The Spirit whispered to me, "Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief" (Mark 9:24). I still worry that I have enough faith, but I feel peace now. It will all work out.
