So it is.

As of yesterday, October 23, 2007, I have been accepted into the ranks of Biology as a Doctor (of Philosophy), following a three-and-a-half hour grilling on my thesis. As per tradition, I have some minor corrections to do on the document (I couldn’t believe some mistakes I made) and then it’s print-out and hard binding (some six copies!). Oh – and I’m also graduating on December 5, when I get to wear a saffron-red-black gown complete with a squashed hat straight out of 14th-century Italy.

It’s been a long ride, with many ups and even more downs, but God can work miracles. I thank Him because these last days He has graced me with a particularly strong sense of His presence, and that was an enormously calming factor as I walked into the dragon’s den today.

Also, I want to thank all of you who have been praying for me and have been encouraging me along. The names are many and valuable.

And now I look forward to what God has in store for the future – with excitement and anticipation.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Jeremiah 29:11
