This is the year I was supposed to graduate.
But I feel like going one more, a victory lap.
It’s been interesting watching my friends who I grew up with here, those same friends that I did crazy things with as a freshman, fill out their intent to graduate forms, picking up graduation gowns, moving on with life after college. Yet they seem to be at the same place I am.
Unsure, scared, but excited!
I always looked at school as a a huge mountain. Every year since kindergarden, you climb just a little higher. I never realized what was at the top, but I knew it had to be fantastic!
I’d like to think that at the top is a parasail. God is up there, he says “Well done, now jump! Trust me.” and then we have a decision to make. I like how well APU has trained us to follow Proverbs 3:5&6 and to trust in the Lord, and it prepares us to take the leap and follow him wherever he wants us to go after this. Our lives are for him and in the last 4 years, if we have learned anything it’s this:
Congratulations class of 2010! You’ll all do amazing things!
