that perfect hand…

In Ocean's 11, Danny said that "the house always wins. If you play long enough, never change the stakes, then the house takes you. Unless, when that perfect hand comes along, you bet big… and then, you take the house." Here's the hand I've been dealt, sometimes it's risky and sometimes it's safe, but all the time… it's perfect. It's mine.

the next step


I just finished my application for the UVic Post-Degree Professional Teaching Program today — planning to take a day to think and pray with it tomorrow, and finally hand it in on Wednesday (two days before it is due, no less). I am praying that these next few months become those of answers and relief and the light in the tunnel getting a little brighter everyday. Please think of me, I am so afraid that I won’t be accepted, as I’ve shared before. I need patience for the answer and the grace to handle it if it doesn’t go the way I hope.

What’s God going to say to my questions? I’m braced for the worst. I’ll climb to the lookout tower and scan the horizon. I’ll wait to see what God says; how He’ll answer my complaint.

And then God answered: “Write this.
Write what you see. Write it out in big block letters
so that it can be read on the run. This vision-message is a witness
pointing to what’s coming. It aches for the coming—it can hardly wait!
And it doesn’t lie. If it seems slow in coming, wait.
It’s on its way. It will come right on time.

Look at that man, bloated by self-importance—
full of himself but soul-empty. But the person in right standing before God through loyal and steady believing is fully alive, really alive.”

Habakkuk 2:1-4 (The Message)

I. LOVE. That.
