sitting in starbucks transposed journal entry

I am sitting at my little starbucks table with a low hanging light over my head. I just got out of my Bible Study Group and now am reviewing for the GRE.
Two history teachers (male) share my bench to the right and discuss lecturing and handling students. I might be a teacher someday. A woman only a few years older than me is sitting with her six month old daughter by the big window to my left. She is infatuated with that baby; she loves her. Look at them play together. Look at how she gazes at her. Look at how much she values this time she is spending with her. I might be a mother some day.
The low hanging light over my head is like God. No matter what is happening with the teaching career or with motherhood on my left and right, I am still sitting immobile under Him.
Both parties left at the same time.
I think I will not throw this GRE study book at the wall and I will continue to refrain from premarital sex.

Not fully related to the post, but I'm sticking this here anyway:

I did a wonderful Bible study right after my accountability group met this morning. I read
1 Peter 2:22
Matt 9:37
PRAY EARNESTLY to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into the harvest.
Romans 12:11ish
NEVER BE LACKING IN ZEAL. BE FERVENT in spirit, serving the Lord.
