Congratulations Marijke!

Went to a graduation today. Marijke received her
"Certificate in Christian Studies" today. I have to admit I was a little surprised. Despite being involved at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church for the last 6 months or so, I still expected a Seminary graduation to be a little bit dry. Not so much. I laughed a lot. In fact, I heard one of the funniest stories ever at the graduation dinner last night, told by one of the ladies that works at the seminary. Well, congratulations Marijke, we're all proud of your accomplishment and I, for one, am looking forward to seeing you perform the wedding ceremony of one of my old students (he's marrying the daughter of one of the original owners of Free Wheeler - small world!). So now I have a brother-in-law and a sister-in-law in the ministry profession. Never thought I feel this way, but - pretty cool.

God looks out for idiots and drunks.
Well, I wasn't drunk, so I must be an idiot, 'cause God was looking out for me. The other day on my way to class I backed my car into the parking spot at Trax. When we got back from class and I was putting my backpack in the trunk of the car, I noticed I got a little close to the light post when I parked. Amazingly, and completely oblivious to it, I parked that close and didn't even scratch the car. Whew!
