...hello, Dr. Whitaker!
Thursday was a turning point for the Whitaker family--Vance gave his seminar, defended his thesis, and got his PhD! We are very proud of all his hard work! It's hard to believe it's come to an end. Although he still has some things to wrap up, prepping his chapters for publication and such, the big deal is done.
For those of you who are waiting and wondering what the next step is for us...the answer is that we don't know. We are definitely learning to wait and trust that God has worked out our future for us, even though we have no idea what it looks like at this point. Really, all we know is that it probably doesn't look like anything we've planned ourselves... I've been very blessed by God's merciful gift of timely sermons, reminding me who I'm trusting in, and how worthy of my trust he is.
But for now, we're not really thinking much about what we can't know. We're just celebrating!
