A few days ago I was reading an essay by E.B. White that I had read for a class in college a few semesters ago. White writes,
"The only sense that is common, in the long run, is the sense of change -
and we all instinctively avoid it, and object to the passage of time,
and would rather have none of it."
I dislike change, and I found my heart agreeing with White. This summer has been a summer of change, but it has been good change. I graduated from college in May and am embarking on my first teaching job as I write from the Atlanta airport. I'm flying to Panama City to teach literature and language arts at an international school.
I told myself I did not want to teach overseas again after Vietnam, yet, here I am. Clearly His plans are not my plans. I should have learned by now not to plan out my life, but I do it anyway. But He is faithful and I am excited for this new part of my life to begin.
Here's to travel and to hard work!
