    DS has been anxiously waiting for a MOC nomination for USAFA. We heard that Senator #1 sent out nomination letters in October but DS didn't get one. Huge letdown, especially for Mom. Senator #2 indicated that candidates would be notified late December/Early January. DS had an interview with Congressman Monday and the panel indicated that candidates would be notified shortly.

    The result of this has been lots of anxious runs to the mailbox. Well, yesterday DS gets a letter from Senator #1 stating "due to unforeseen circumstances, they (USAFA) now have another vacancy" and DS has been nominated.

    As I reflect on this, it reminds me that from our perspective most of life is a series of unforeseen circumstances. It also reminds me that God is God and we aren't. Today our family is counting the blessing of unforeseen circumstances as we celebrate that DS is now half way toward his goal of attending USAFA.

    Excellent news. Remember, another slot/nomination doesn't mean an appointment. So lets hope your son's chances increase 3 fold and he also gets nominations from the other senator and representative. That would be 3 times better; increasing your son's chances even more. Either way; a single nomination is still better than non at all. And you are quite correct; at least in my opinion; there are only 2 truths in the world that I know of.
    1. There IS a God
    2. I'm not him

    Best of luck to you. Mike......
