It is finished. (almost) :)

Wednesday morning at 9am I defended my Ph.D. thesis. Finally. :) It's been a long time coming. Oh, I should mention that I passed. Always a good thing. Hopefully now sleep will become part of my regular routine again, although I'm not back home yet. I have a few corrections to finish up from my committee but nothing major, and I will be so happy when it is all done.

I want to thank the many of you who have been praying for me, some of whom didn't even know what you were praying for. God has sustained me in absolutely unbelievable ways during the past few weeks. He has kept me safe and healthy through a few weeks of very little sleep and a really bad diet (the truffles were delicious!). He gave me the wisdom and grace that I asked for, to be able to answer questions and converse as a true daughter of His--with a calm heart knowing that I had nothing to fear regardless of the outcome of my defense. God continues to hold me in His hands. I feel His presence daily and I am so grateful for it. So again, thank you and please know that God definitely heard every one of your prayers and it was very evident in my life.

Back to corrections! :)

Yay for you! :):):) I remember being "done" with school. What a relief. I thought I'd never go back, but now I'm relearning Multiplication tables and, embarrassingly enough, the countries of the world for the first time :? Micah knows Europe better than I do.
