The Graduate

 "'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'" (Jeremiah 29:11)
Oh, the excitement and the anticipation of the day...!

The applause, the laughs, the tears of joy.

The accomplishment.

The honor.

After 3 years of intense study, my dear husband Seth graduated from Howard Payne University in Brownwood, Texas with a Bachelor of Arts in Practical Theology.  He not only graduated--he graduated WELL.  He received the honor of Suma Cum Laude with a GPA of  3.96, and was also the top Christian Studies graduate of his graduating class.

I'm so very proud of this accomplishment.  Tears of joy well up as I write.  I'm so very proud of my man!

This is evidence of God at work for sure!  How else could a 34 year old man with a demanding loving wife, 2 very active preteen/teen kids, and a full-time youth pastor position possibly have time for school and then do so well while there?  It's absolutely an amazing thing!  Praise God! He is SO good.

The kids are pretty proud of Dad, too!

What's next?

Well, Seth is pursuing graduate school or seminary to get his Master's degree now.  He will take the spring semester off and then start back up full swing in the fall of 2012.

I think he's earned a break, don't you?

Good job Seth & Amy. A good man cannot succeed without a good supporting wife. See you soon, the snow is building
