Why I’m NOT going to Law School…yet!

IMG_8886

Okay, so I thought about making a click-bait title…but I know how much they annoy me and decided I should do unto others what I would like them to do unto me…

(PLEASE don’t share click-bait with me…INNANETS IS YOU LISTENING?)

I JUST HAPPENED to be starting law school in 3 weeks…that’s right…21 days!

I JUST HAPPENED to be going with a 75% scholarship…that JUST HAPPENED to be negotiated from 50%! BUT GOD!

I JUST HAPPENED to be approved for a leave absence from teaching, My cousin Nate JUST HAPPENED to offer to pay for my books,  I JUST HAPPENED to save up enough to cover all the expenses for the year so that I wouldn’t need loans with plans to get a paid internship for the summers to pay for the expenses for the next years (me and my plans, again.)

It was going to be tight, BUT GOD provides, so I know He already made a way for us to have everything we need.

I JUST HAPPENED to be on vacation after working a ton this summer.

This JUST HAPPENED to be our “last hurrah” before starting school.

I JUST HAPPENED to get an invite to a law school event for admitted students, alum, and current students, AND it JUST HAPPENED to be in the same place where we were vacationing WHILE we were in town!

I had even forgotten that I sent an RSVP for this event. The email-reminder said professional dress…I didn’t have anything REMOTELY professional…I’m on vacation, remember?

My cousin April JUST HAPPENED to be available to watch my daughter for a few hours. She JUST HAPPENED to live 5 miles from the location of the event!

My aunt Renea JUST HAPPENED to have a bunch of professional dresses that JUST HAPPENED to fit!

My cousin Renitta JUST HAPPENED to have almost a dozen shoes that JUST HAPPENED to be my size AND that she JUST HAPPENED to have in her trunk for donating!

I JUST HAPPENED to be one of TWO admitted students to attend the event.  The DEAN JUST HAPPENED to tell me about an opportunity that JUST HAPPENED to be available to me.

There JUST HAPPENED to be a 100% FULL TUITION AND FEES SCHOLARSHIP available.  I would JUST need to wait a year. I’ll share in a later post what JUST HAPPENED to be on my vision board.

This isn’t the end…and NO ONE WILL EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER (had enough? NOPE!) NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER convince me that ANY OF THIS, A SINGLE OCCURRENCE, NOT EVEN THE TINIEST MOMENT, JUST HAPPENED!

Everything is ALL GOD!

EVERYTHING!

Yes, I put in some work, yes there have been tough decisions that I had to make. Tears, prayers, tantrums (mine and my daughter), BUT GOD!

I know that God has a teaching position OR SOMETHING ELSE useful for me to do in this “gap year”.  I’m not going to freak out about what it may be, I’m going to trust HIM!  He is showing OUT (per usual!)

Hope my excitement is evident in the ALL CAPS!

He’s already provided! *In my Martha Munizzi voice*

He’s intentional! *In my Travis Greene voice*

#PraiseHands #PraiseFeet #AllOverPraise

The best is yet to come!
