Starting my new classes today.

I am starting my new classes today and I think they are going to be very enjoyable.  You would think going to college at my age would be a daunting task, and occasionally it is, but for the most part it is very fulfilling.  I would recommend it to anyone because I feel learning something new only enhances your life.  I wish I had done this many years ago.  It would have been harder to work, raise a family, and go to school at the same time, but I still wish I had.

Oh well, I am doing it now so that is all that matters, huh?  I wanted to enter my book in the Christian Literary Guild contest for new writers but, between entry fees and time restraints, I guess I will have to wait until next year.

I realize I have not posted in quite a while, but frankly there just aren’t enough hours in the day to do everything.  I am looking forward to making the Honor Roll again, and have received my membership certificate in the National Society for Collegiate Scholars, which I am so proud of.

I really would like to hear from you if you read my blog.  Let me know what I need to do to enhance your reading experience.  I am new to the blog scene and I am still learning about how to post tags (I am still not certain I have done it right), assign links (don’t have a clue), or Surf.  So if you have any advice please give, as I am willing to listen.

Don’t forget to leave me a comment, okay?

Today has been wonderful.  I love my classes and have great Professors.  I haven’t taken Science or Sociology in many, many years, and I am really excited about taking these subjects.  Several of my classmates are members of NSCS too, and that is super.  I have finished my posts and now I am on to finishing my reading, and I have a lot to read.

School has started

I am so excited to be back in class again.  It was nice having a couple of weeks off, but I am so ready to get back to my classes.  So far I have two very nice instructors and the classmates I have met, sound fantastic.  This semester is Science and Sociology, and both are going to be extremely interesting.

I have started a third novel in the Moonspinner sagas, and hope to enter it for consideration around the first of September.  Say an extra prayer for me.  My days are going to be completely crammed.  That thought thrills me to pieces.

Mother’s day was wonderful.  I was served my lunch in my room and had a great dinner with my daughter and her family.  God has blessed me so much I can hardly believe it.  Of course every billowy white cloud has it’s dark corner, but hopefully mine will get lighter and lighter, because there is someone I miss terribly and love so very much, it hurts.  All in God’s time though.  I am going to add another poem {finally} now.  Hope you enjoy.  Please let me know what you think.

College for Senior Citizens

I never thought I would be able to go to college, but now I do.  It  is amazing how much I have learned already, and I am loving every minute.  I highly recommend furthering your education whenever you can.  I waited until my children were raising their children to enroll in college.  I am taking my courses online and the only thorn in my side is Math.  I have forgotten so much and am now having to relearn all I learned in high school.  That’s the only downside.

Today has been a good day and I have so many blessings to be thankful for I can hardly believe it myself.  I don’t consider the losses over the past few years as anything but blessings in disguise.  Thank you GOD for all my blessings and for the blessings I have yet to see or be a part of.

GOD is Awesome! Update on my Son.

I had the best news a little bit ago.  My son went to his kidney doctor and his kidneys have increased in function from 19% to 24%.  Thank you GOD for miracles and for my son’s healing.  I pray for a total healing for him from head to toe.  Let him be a walking testimony to the power of our healing GOD!

Lisa is doing Great!

She is talking softly, and laughing and moving around some.  Thank you Lord!

Pray for a miracle for my son.   He is seeing his kidney doctor tomorrow, and I am praying for a miracle:  that his kidneys are functioning at 100%.  I want everyone to know the healing power of GOD, and if there is someone that needs to know the Lord, then let this miracle prove to them the way they should go.  Make believers out of everyone that comes in contact with my son.  Thank you Lord for healing my son!

Lisa is doing well!

I haven’t heard any updates today yet.  I pray she is doing well.  Please keep praying for little 5 yr. old Lisa Trotter.  She is in GOD’s hands, and we love her dearly.

Pray for Lisa

My daughter was baby sitting for her best friend’s little girl, Lisa. She is a beautiful, energetic five year old, and she suddenly collapsed this past Wednesday afternoon and stopped breathing. They were outside waiting for the ice cream truck, and she just sat down and fell over. My daughter got to her within a minute, grabbed her up and ran up the driveway yelling to me to, “call 911, she’s not breathing”!

She laid her across the hood of my grandson’s truck, and began CPR, and this was within three minutes. We had no idea why this happened, so many questions and no answers. She was taken to Newnan hospital, and then LifeFlighted to Egleston’s Childrens Hospital. She suffered cardiac arrest once here at home, again in the ambulance, again in the helicopter, and once again at Egleston. The doctors have kept her sedated, until they could finish all tests. She has done great and the doctors said the swift action of my daughter kept her breathing and basically saved her life. According to the doctors, only 1 in 1000 children collapse in this way and unfortunately they usually do not survive.

GOD is so wonderful! HE put everyone in the right place at the right time, for her well being. I praise the Lord for giving Lisa back to us. She is stable, off all the machinery that was doing all for her to keep her body from working too hard. They have determined she has prolonged QT Wave, not sure what that is, but it has to do with her heart.

I just checked and they took her off all tubes and machines and she is breathing on her own. PRAY FOR LISA. Go Lisa! You’re our fighting little Angel Girl. I love you, Nanna

The past couple of months have been really stressful.  The beginning of January, I was in my home, concerned about how I could pay my bills, and waiting for the foreclosure notice of eviction .  My satellite tv and internet were cut off, and I had to go to either my son’s or daughter’s house to get access to my classroom.  Then I found out I would have to move.  I didn’t know where I would even move to.  Being a senior citizen, and only Social Security for income, made it worse.  I couldn’t afford a place to rent, nor did I even have the money to move.  Then my car broke down.  I didn’t have the money to fix it, so I sold it and used that money to move on.

I moved to my daughter’s home, and all the fears I had before moving, just disappeared.  My two dogs came with me, but I sent my two kittens to live with a friend, until I can get my own place.  I no longer have to be concerned about anything except my school and getting my degree.  My children are true blessings and my grandchildren are my heartbeats.

My days are spent studying, laughing with the children, enjoying the fresh air, and generally just being loved.  I have lived in a cocoon  of silence for the past 12 years.  It has been a big transition to find myself involved daily with family once again, and I thank God every day for my life and the blessings he has bestowed on me.  They are too many to count.

If you find yourself faced with major changes as I have, don’t fight it.  Embrace the change and trust God to carry you over the rough spots and to put you where you are supposed to be.  Be happy and never lose your joy.
