Just for the record, I should not even be thinking about posting an update right now. I have my first test of the semester tomorrow morning, plus I'm supposed to have read a book by tomorrow that I still have about 60 pages in. I have research to do, counseling sessions to plan, and more housework than I really want to consider.

But I couldn't resist when I realized that I have not put a word out in the blogosphere in many days.

As you can probably tell, the Seefeldts are engulfed in the semester. Yes, engulfed. But the really exciting news is that Joshua found out that he can graduate in May of 2008 instead of December of 2008. Talk about a big change! We are so excited!

So, what does that mean for us besides one less semester of tuition to pay (as if that isn't enough reason for a party!)? Well, Sarah will finish her classwork in May and then do her internship to finish her program during the summer. She can't officially graduate until December, though, because there is no August graduation at seminary. (She is trying not to be bitter.) Sarah is working with a professor to figure out her options at that point on what she should do next. BUT - Joshua has the decision to make about Where does he want to work? Once we finish school there is nothing keeping us from moving for a job. So we are considering options.

This all came about this week, so it's all pretty new. Very exciting. And of course, for the planner like me, very overwhelming because I want to have it all figured out NOW!!! I'm learning to be patient, submissive, and trusting as I wait for Josh to decide where he wants to work and where we should live.

Alright, that's it for now. Back to studying...or was I reading...or is it time to start on dinner?

Hi! Hi! Hi! Good to see you got married. I remember ya'll dating but have no idea when you got engaged, etc. I found you on facebook through Ashley's wedding pictures. How are you? Where are you in school at? You guys are so cute together! It's so great to see you are doing well!

I can hear the excitement (and slight anxiety) in your words. I'm so pumped that Josh will finish up early, and he can begin looking for a job.

I can personally testify that it is HARD truly stepping back, and letting your husband decide where he wants to work, trusting that he is looking out for both of your best interests. And in the end, his top choice may not line up with your top choice. But trust that he is seeking God, and God is leading him, and no matter where you end up, it will be right where you should be.

Try not to worry about what you do not know right now. Put your head down, work hard through these last few semesters, enjoy your counseling sessions, and don't worry too much about housework. (haha- I threw that last one in there to make myself feel better about my own wreck-of-a-house!)

I'm very excited about the opportunities that lie ahead of you and Josh. You both have so much to offer this world, and will surely touch the lives of people wherever God wants you. Rest in that truth, and just be happy with where He has you today.

I miss you and I wish I could give you both a big, congratulatory hug! Talk to you soon,
