My own journey starts tomorrow

March 30th, 2014 at 03:10 pm

I've posted a lot about how my family is in flux, trying to ride out the stress of DH's awful job and finding employment, all while preparing for his own return to school in the fall.

An update on the homefront. Things are better, by no means perfect, but at least I feel we are traversing upward from the lowest point we've been at. I'm definitely taking the initiative to maintain contact and listen to the good, bad, and ugly. Our weekend has been a blessing with nothing but a soccer game.

And I've convinced DH to take a vacation day next Friday (kids are on Spring Break) and my mom is funding a trip for us to the top of the Willis Tower. We've never been to the sky decks, will take the train, meet my brother at his office, have lunch at a local Subway. All good.

Tomorrow night I return to school. My first class in forever. I am starting coursework for pastoral care and an eventual M.Div. I was going to take three classes to start, but at this point rather than set myself up for failure, I changed it to two. I was going to do two classes on Mondays (4:00-6:40 and then 7:00-9:40) but then switched it to one Monday night class and a Thursday afternoon which will be better for everyone all around.

I am scared, but very excited. And the potential of being qualified as a specialist in the field I've volunteered in is very appealing, meaning I can become well-compensated.

So, I thought I would share my excitement, and nervousness. If you could spare a positive thought/small prayer for the transition, I would be eternally grateful. Many thanks. Smile

    Wishing you the best, Laura!! I think dropping that extra class was probably a wise move for the first set of coursework. Smile

    O, Eternal Father and Incarnate Word, through the Gifts and Fruits of your Holy Spirit, enlighten and perfect Laura's intellect, will and affections that in all things she may be what your Divine Wisdom intended her to be, a Bearer of Christ to all. Illuminate her intellect with supernatural faith; strengthen her will with supernatural hope; and inflame her heart with your Divine Love. Through your grace only will she, therefore, put on the image of Christ so that through Him, and with Him, and in Him, she shall advance the Peace of Christ in the Reign of Christ, and be an eternal Bearer of Him to all her brothers and sisters.
