Graduation

I have to admit, its been quite the journey working to earn my Doctoral degree. I have loved the time with colleagues and friends, have been blessed by the reading, grown from the writing and cherish this experience. It is also the hardest thing I have ever done. It was stressful, overwhelming and grumpiness producing. I have come to the place where I am now nearing the finish line. I have only a couple minor things left to work on and then I am done. Graduation is in mid-June and I cannot wait. I don’t care much about being called Dr., although I will embrace the title where appropriate. I don’t care much about what I get from it, as there is not much I can see that I earn in that sense, but I am grateful for what it has done for me. I am also thankful to be able to take this degree, this accomplishment and all that I learned and make good of it. I want to use my knowledge and experience for the Kingdom of God. I am thankful that I will have the opportunity to do that and look forward to being ‘officially’ done when I send my final copy in the mail and when I walk at graduation. I am thankful for all who have helped me and tolerated me on this long, but life-giving journey.
