unexpected

I went into Session (church council) tonight with a proposal asking them to extend the lay “internship” I have been doing for another year. The first response from one woman was “Thanks be to God.” They asked a few questions and sent me out of the room. When they brought me back, they said “We love you.” I waited. They repeated, “We love you.” I said, “We love you, but…?” They said, “We love you, and… we want to wait a month to consider whether we want to extend the internship or maybe offer you a part-time job.” That was unexpected. So… I don’t know where that will go, but I am full of gratitude tonight. I love them, too.
