May 1st, the due date of my final paper! That's right, all of my papers are in!
I'm still awake. Now, I realize that it is not THAT late yet, but I'm much closer to being awake than asleep. Maybe this is God's way of telling me that I need to study some more Greek before I call it a night.
A couple of things happened to me today.
First, I got an email about an additional scholarship available to ministry students. I need all the money I can get, so I started reading the application for it. It turns out that this nice family who donated the money for the scholarship only wants the money to go to a MALE ministry student. Ouch, that hurts. That's pretty discouraging.
Second, I got a letter in the mail from my dear friend Emily Lemley. She is the editor for Power for Today, a Christian mailout thing. She wants me to write a couple of articles for this little magazine. I realize that just about anyone can write articles for this and it's not that big of a deal, but it's really nice to be asked. That's pretty affirming.
