Sending Your Husband Off to School

My dear husband started his year-long computer training course yesterday. For some reason, I have been a ball of stress and emotions surrounding this event. He seems to be really happy to take on this venture, to be free of his old job, and to learn some new work skills to help up in the future. I guess I am the one who is the worry-wort over how we will manage financially and relationally.

Every new step in life is filled with choices to either open up our hearts to the goodness of God or to try to do things on our own. My emotions are chronically myopic. I can only ride wave to wave, up and down, if I rely on them. With my faith and mind, I can see the long range, the benefits on the other side. Are my emotions evil? No, but they are only to be trusted to a limited extent. Its ok to admit I’m scared or nervous or overwhelmed. Even saying that helps.

I am joyful, deeply joyful for Jeff to have this opportunity. He will grow in confidence, ability, and leadership.  He will be a better husband and citizen. Pray for me as I learn to yield and ask the Father for all that we need.

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you are licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what." No idea where that last quote came from, but I like it!
