Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5).
I know, I got it backwards. I did Proverbs 3:6 yesterday and now I’m doing 3:5.
Kid, if that’s the most confusing thing to happen to you today, color yourself lucky.
This morning, my son is flying 2,149.5 miles to check out a college.
I’m not a fan.
Oh, he has my permission to go–it’s a great opportunity, they’re paying for the trip, the school has a great reputation in the field he wants to pursue, blah, blah, blah.
Still, no fano meo.
My reasons are multitudinous and thoroughly righteous. You see, if he visits the college, he might like it. If he likes it, he might go.
If he goes, he might stay.
In college you meet people. You explore places. You make contacts, get internships, maybe job offers. Maybe one of those persons you meet is the person, know what I mean? Maybe one of the places becomes the place. So you settle down, sink roots, make money, make babies, make a life.
2149.5 miles away
Trust in the Lord with all your heart…
But with my son?
I have a feeling this may be a much wilder ride than coming down the mountain with no brakes.
Happy Thursday, Beloved.
