My goodness gracious. The two weeks since I last posted have been eventful and somewhat challenging.
First off, my college studies have resumed, and this term I’m taking the College Math Prep class (basically Algebra 1). So far so good, but I do find myself thinking, “What possible difference is this going to make in my life at my age and with my particular career?” The answer, None. But to get to the degree I have to do this and one math class for credit so here I go.
The day after taking my math diagnostic test, Jerry and I flew to Colorado Springs to hang out with a bunch of writing friends and their spouses. Most of us have been hanging out together off and on for fifteen to twenty years. No agenda. Just talking and laughing and talking and laughing. Here is a photo of just the novelists:
From left to right on the ground: Robert Elmer, Jerry Jenkins, Brandilyn Collins, Deborah Raney, Terri Blackstock, Robin Jones Gunn, Nancy Moser, Francine Rivers, Melody Carlson, Angela Hunt, and Robin Lee Hatcher.
Left to right up in the fort: Randy Alcorn and Gayle Moser.
Then, two days after our return, my husband was driving home on the freeway in rush hour (standstill) traffic when he was rear-ended by a teenager. It was a very bad accident, and he could have easily been killed. Only by the grace of God did the accident not have deadly repercussions.
Thank You, God, for looking out for my husband.
