It is marvellous in our eyes

This is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes.

Elizabeth I of England, when she was told that she was Queen (17 November 1558) — the words are from Psalm 118

The university in Elfland offered me the job on 23 December 2011.  After the  interview, being the dramatic creature that I am, I planned that if they should offer me the job, I would utter Elizabeth’s words upon receiving the offer.  But when I read the offer, I was simply dumbfounded and spoke nothing.
