Happy 2013 everyone!
This is a pretty simple passage to understand, and I think it’s covered well in E100.
But what I really love in this are the disciples. They just seem so unsure the whole time about what’s happening, they’re confused and they have so many questions. But I like this, because they were chosen, and we’ve all seen how disobedient and doubtful they can be. It makes me feel not so bad about when I fall off the tracks a bit, because the people Jesus trusted in the whole world did the same.
And even when their questions are answered, they still don’t seem to really understand what’s happening. In verses 9-10, as they’re looking up into the heavens after him, I can just imagine one of them turning to the others and saying ‘So, is he coming back, or what?’
It’s sometimes not always clear for us what the plan is. My plan was to reapply for CAO and come back to Ireland in September. I’m not sure why, but I can’t even bring myself to bring up the CAO website. I still have time, but I know I won’t be able to do it. Even though college is something I should probably do, and want to do, there’s just some unexplainable force stopping me. So, pretty much I’m staying in Germany until… ??
Even though, I’m still not sure exactly what I’m doing, or what I will be doing, I still feel ok about it. Here, more than ever, I’ve felt like there is something guiding me forward. Telling me that here is the place to be. But, I’ll be back in 4 weeks, and maybe I’ll know more about plans then, or maybe I won’t! But I’m feeling confident, that whatever I do in the coming months, it’ll be good! See you all soon, hopefully!
