This week’s schedule has been: paint and trim in my flat until lunch, and rest/study/sort stuff/pack stuff in boxes in the afternoon. Not being a full time store keeper feels like being on holiday, and I feel responsible to make every minute count. Did I mention that I feel like a new person, not being a full-time shop keeper?
Next week this time I plan to be in northern IN, with relations I haven’t seen for far too long. And then be with them for Christmas. It feels utterly luxurious but when I remember that I’ve celebrated 12 Christmases on this side of the Atlantic, I think it’s ok, and justifiable to be with them this time.
Then us 4 sisters will convene in CA, no less, to be sisters and tourists for 10 days. O joy! Then I will tag along with one sister to Faith Builders, where I will be ensconced in a student’s world for 5 wks, for which I can scarcely wait. And always having been the oldest sister and leading in everything, it is great fun to be the follower this time.
And then somehow I will find my way to Calvary Bible school in Arkansas to teach a class for young women. This is completely new territory for me, this business of being a teacher. HOW does one go about it? I already understand the grim, determined look I often saw on teacher’s faces as they headed to their places of study. But right now the grimmness has left my face, and I am full of questions, but excited and in awe of the privilege before me. By the Lion’s mane, I will do the best I can.

You can do it, Anita! I am so happy for the opportunity you have to teach at CBS. And for the opportunity to be with sisters and to study at FB. May it be above and beyond what you can wish for!
Anita, my friend,
I have just enjoyed catching up on the last 6 months of your life and am longing for a chance for a long talk! Maybe someday soon. 🙂
