watershed moments

Perhaps you can relate. That feeling that you get when you wake up on the day of your wedding and it hits you that the next time you wake up, he will be there with you. Or maybe it hit you when you were walking out the door that the next time you went through that door you’d be carrying a newborn baby into your home for the first time.

I remember learning about ‘watershed events’ in literature class somewhere back in highschool as a defining moment in the story that changes everything from there on out. The way the story goes before the event and after the event are completely different, all because of that one thing that happens.

Our watershed event will come today in the form of a letter or a phone call. We are waiting to see if my husband has been accepted into the Physician’s Assistant program at the University of Washington School of Medicine. “That feeling” hit me today as I was loading the dishwasher, and I realized that when I unload these dishes tomorrow, we will either be in the baby stages of planning a move, or gearing up for another year here on the Palouse. It also hit me just a second ago when I hung up the phone after talking with my husband and I realized that the next time I talk to him it will probably be with news, one way or another.

We’ve been preparing ourselves now for a response either way – we can see the wisdom and grace of God displayed in either outcome. We of course would prefer that He orchestrate our acceptance into P.A. school, but we have also prepared ourselves for a rejection. We’ve prayed for doors to open or shut, and so now we’re waiting to see which way it’ll swing on the hinges. We would be grateful for your prayers today as we wait in anticipation. Pray for patience, contentment, faith, and a spirit of genuine thankfulness, regardless of the outcome. Thank you!
