This past Saturday, my husband graduated from college. It took him nine years but he never gave up when things got tough. He has worked hard for our family to accomplish this goal that his parents are proud of and that I am proud of. I cannot wait to see where God takes our family and how God will use Rob through teaching high school students.
I feel like this past year I have been on a spiritual roller coaster and as this school year comes to a close, I feel that I am having a spiritual graduation in my heart. I have learned many things that God has wanted me to learn. I have felt God changing my heart, mind, and soul to have a better attitude. I have felt God working on me to give things to Him and not to worry.
Saturday was an emotional day. We wished that Rob's dad could have been here to see Rob graduate. We know Rob's dad is very proud of him. On another emotional note, it marked 5 years since I graduated college. God has done a lot in my family inside of these 5 years. God has had plans that we never would have thought of. Even though some plans didn't go as we thought, God was and still is faithful, loving, merciful. God was and is our provider, comforter, and forgiver of our mistakes. I don't know what the future will hold for our family. One thing I know is that God will be with us. We will have faith, hope, and love.
