1. Of course this had to make the top Ten on Tuesday: My house sold, y'all!!!!!! In less than 30 days and before it was even put on the market. That's right. At 1 p.m. today in Tallahassee, 5500 Green Meadows no longer belonged to this chick. Just after I signed the papers earlier this month to release it to be sold, owners put a bid on the house, although there were at least four other houses on my street that had floor plans like mine with signs in the yard -- some had been on the market for at least a year. How do you explain that? If you're standing on faith, you just say, "That's God and that's how he works!" If only I had listened to him earlier when he told me to put on the market. So, what's the lesson for the day: When God tells you to do something, get like Nike and "just do it!"
2. I felt peace when I went into the Old Testament test today and peace when I came out. That has to mean something, right?
3. There is no way to read all these assignments and read them fully. So, I've stopped trying.
4. How is that I moved to a state that has no water and no gas?
5. Speaking of gas, somebody needs to send me a care package -- no food, just gas, please!
6. While we're on the gas theme, it was almost rare tonight to not see lines at the gas pump. I guess we're back on the mend.
7. I'm bewildered, excited and frustrated by this journey through seminary. I think they call this adventure.
8. If words could flow from my pen like Donald Shockley I would be one bad writer and storyteller. His work just lets me know I still have a ways to go.
9. I still haven't figured out what was going on with the dizziness on Monday. It felt like my equilibrium was off. I'll blame it on being in seminary. Seminary gets the blame for everything these days.
10. I'm feeling this Bahamas travel seminar sponsored by the World Methodist Evangelism Institute in January is calling my name. I'll work on the essay this weekend.
