So what? Well, first meeting with the field education (aka internship) director at the seminar. First time getting through the seminary in-box. First time saying with earnest, "I'm a seminarian." First "night before school" butterflies. First workshop on Inter-Cultural Competencies begins tomorrow. First time to morning prayer in the new-interim chapel. First ...
It's all good. And I pray that when I am filled with the What If? butterflies, I'll remember what one wise person asked me to consider, "Where are your feet?" and "It's okay not to know." I pray that I pack these mantras in my book bag tomorrow.
The good news is that my feet are here. Every day is a first. Every day is a gift. Every day is sweet grace.
What Firsts are showing up in this moment for you?
