I AM DONE

And it feels great!

I finished writing my last paper yesterday afternoon. Mrangelmeg is doing the last of the edits tonight and I am going to mail these babies off tomorrow (one whole day early woo hoo!!!).

I don't think I have another thing to say about grace, free will, theologians, the Magisterium, or heresy, I am tapped out.

Now I just have to sit back and wait for them to be graded and hope for at least a B average on the three papers and no lower than a C on any one paper. I think I did at least B work on all three and quite possibly A work on at least one of them (in my humble opinion) so I am pretty safe. But who knows.

As that great theologian Tom Petty said:

The Waiting is the hardest part.

It always sounds better with wailing guitars in the background.

Congratulations!

Mr. Petty also said:

No longer will you be a slave
No longer will you have to crawl
No longer will you suffer
No longer will you stall
....
Hey baby, you're a free girl now
Hey baby, you're a free girl now

Crank it up!

But let me get to the point
Let's roll another joint
And turn the radio up loud

Rufus,

You are assuming that I do that sort of thing.

I gave up smoking ANYTHING
my second senior year in college.

Now that is a story.

I gave up drinking ANYTHING

a little later.

I was just singing some more Tom Petty lyrics, in a metaphorical mode, angelmeg. You got me started jonesing for more Tom Petty. Had to go straight to YouTube after you quoted him here.

Well I wont back down, no I wont back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I wont back down

Gonna stand my ground, wont be turned around
And Ill keep this world from draggin me down
Gonna stand my ground and I wont back down

Hey baby, there aint no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I wont back down.

Well I know whats right, I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin me around
But Ill stand my ground and I wont back down

Hey baby there aint no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I wont back down
No, I wont back down

Well I started out down a dirty road
Started out all alone
And the sun went down as I crossed the hill
The town lit up the world got still

I'm learning to fly but I ain't got wings
Comin' down is the hardest thing

Well the good old days may not return
And the rocks might melt, and the sea may burn

I'm learning to fly but I ain't got wings
Comin down is the hardest thing

Well some say life will beat you down
Break your heart, steal your crown
So I started out for God kno ws where
But I guess Ill know when I get there

I'm learning to fly around the clouds
But what goes up must come down

Im learning to fly but I aint got wings
Comin down is the hardest thing
Im learning to fly around the clouds
But what goes up must come down

Im learning to fly
Im learning to fly

Rufus is proving my point that Tom Petty is a great theologian, just meditate on those lyrics for a while.

The lectio of life, I tell you.
