To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.

I have been enjoying a short bit of respite this week from my usual chock full life. But I wanted to take a moment to share my accomplishments.

Last Friday I completed what has been the most challenging online college course to date. In 8 seemingly short weeks we plowed through a 760-page text on the interesting but complex subject of microbiology–you know, those little bugs that are everywhere. The course included the do it at home lab pack that required 4 cooked labs done in the luxury of my kitchen and grown in a homemade incubator. I know you are quite envious right about now thinking—wow, I wish I could have spent the last 2 months doing that!

In addition, to that course, I completed an online course in Faith Community Nursing. This has been a long held desire of mine and I felt that the time was now. The course culminated with a 2- day retreat by the water. My dream is to build an active health ministry in my local church.

It has been good to have some downtime this week. However, the break is nearly done now. Next week I start back, three courses this time. I really want to get this degree complete and move onto the next step on my God adventure. I hope that I can bring myself here to write once a week. It is nice to reflect back on my journey and share it with you.

Below are a couple of photo’s from the retreat and the pins I earned.

    • Thank you. I think learning helps to keep us young and interesting. I’ve told my husband that I’m not sure I well ever stop going to school…that doesn’t make him too happy though.


  1. Congratulations! I’d wondered what you’d been up to and those are fantastic goals. Hard work, but well worth it.

    Thanks also for the Christmas card. I don’t care how late it was, I enjoyed receiving it and the news about your trip.



  2. It sounds quite challenging but I applaud you for your perseverance… I’m not sure I would have survived the lab work. Haha! 🙂 Thank you for stopping by my blog mirthandmotivation. ❤
