Nescafe rabbit


It rained last night. All night. What a beautiful sound to fall asleep to: soft thunder and lightning and the sound of falling rain.
Medicine exam was quite a nasty trick on us. Lots of eeny-meenie-miney-moe and all that, by the people around me. 173 questions, 45 pages, mostly case scenarios. OB-GYN was all random facts we hadn't been taught, since we weren't down there. Ick, what a mess. But I'm sure it came out all right. Apparently our raw scores go down to Indy and get adjusted, usually the average being mid-70's and still some of the highest in the state.

I won't know until tomorrow morning, when I call Lowene and find out.
But on the good side, there was an error in the answer key for the path exam. Scores have been adjusted: now I have an 83.3%. Yay!

All things.

And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Rom. 8:28

I repeat it and I believe it, with all my heart and mind and soul. God causes all things to work together for good. But it's so hard sometimes, the hardest thing of all.
I remember crying in the lobby, in Michan's spare socks, crying and crying and unable to wrap my mind around it. All things. All things. Where was the good then? Will I ever know?

And it comes back to me now, now in an hour as dark as any, on the same eve where I claim triumph. Where is the good? What great work can possibly be woven of this?

God of grace and God of glory; comforter, shepherd, guide and guardian; redeemer of all things for Your good; for Your purpose: Shelter and guide her, comfort her and protect her. And please, in this time of all times, give at least a little glimpse of what possible purpose this end can achieve. It's so hard to believe, so hard to understand.
It's dark; and I can hardly see, let alone offer any guidance. It's up to You.
