Well...the interview's done. It's a huge weight off...but another one on. I don't think I'll be able to sleep tonight because of many goings-over of all I said, how I conducted myself, etc.
The interview was, in a word, horrible. I didn't understand some of the questions, I couldn't focus my thoughts or get the words out that I wanted to say, and I even got teary-eyed! Can you believe it? I don't know if I've ever done worse! But Dr. Jones was SOOO nice, and understanding, and funny...even though I was so completely stressed out and practically blubbering.
Please, please, please pray for me dear friends that I will be able to leave this interview and this scholarship securely in God's hands, trusting in HIS entirely perfect, beautiful plan. He knows so much better than I what I need, and what He wills WILL come to fruition.
I want to thank you all for your constant love and support...and for the fact that you will still love me and believe in me (I hope) even if I don't get it. You guys are awesome!
On a happier note, I love this college! This trip has just been such a confirmation that I really want to go here. The people here are so nice, and I can just sense God here. "Where two or three are gathered in MY name..."
It's been sunny, but as I was sitting in Dr. Jones' office, I heard some low rumbling. When I got out, there was a full-fledged thunderstorm going on. For some odd reason, it really cheered me up! The huge raindrops and flashes of lightening expressed my feeling better than I could have, so I just laughed and thanked God for sending me a thunderstorm when I was feeling like one myself. And then...yes...I danced a little in the rain. :-)
