Life After Thesis …

So, after the first week of December passed, I completed the first (very rough) draft of my thesis, submitted it and life abounded once more.

The following series of pictures leads right up to the present ūüôā :

About Elizabeth

I am a sinner, saved by grace striving to increase in the knowledge of my Savior and His precious Word each day. The reader should know that there are a few presuppositions with which I approach this blog: 1) I believe in the biblical gospel, which basically purports that all mankind is born under the curse of sin (due to the sin of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden). Therefore, man is separated from God and can have no relationship with God because He is perfectly holy, not even able to look upon sin. Unfortunately, God is also perfectly just and must not only separate Himself from sin, but must also punish it. In order to reconcile man to Himself, God, the Father, sent God, the Son, down to earth to live as a man and take our sins upon Himself on the cross. While on the cross, God, the Son, bore the full weight of the wrath of God, the Father, against our sins in order that we who believe in Him might be set free from the curse of our sin. God, the Son, Jesus Christ, died as a propitiation for our sin in order to appease God, the Father's, holy and just character, redeem us from sin, and reconcile those who believe in this gospel to God, the Father. 2) I am primarily writing to those who already believe in this biblical gospel. In other words, this blog is not focused on evangelizing the lost, but edifying believers. 3) I believe that the Christian Bible is the very word of God. Therefore, it is completely inerrant, infallible, sufficient, and authoritative in the life of a believer.

  1. Elizabeth, all we can say is “mazel tov” ! (Yiddish for something like “wow, what a great day!”). You have labored long and faithfully and we know it must be most encouraging and refreshing for you to see the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. We know that you have worked in humble reliance on the Lord’s enablement, and He is most worthy of praise!

    Great pic’s! It’s great to see you smiling and relaxing!

    Much love,

    STL Mom and Dad

    STL Mom and Dad,

    Thank you both so much for your prayers and encouragement along the way! You are both such testimony and an example for Geoff and I to follow after. We are so blessed to have you both in our lives!

    We are sorry that we were not able to spend much family time with you both over the Holidays, but we look forward to seeing you later this month in St. Louis!

    Love Ya,

    Geoff & Elizabeth
