Here we go again...

So, after dropping out of the nursing program last fall after the first day of classes, I've jumped through the hoops and passed the entrance test on December 29. Today I finally hear that I've been accepted for the program next fall. I'll be pretty old by the time I actually finish school! I turn 56 this fall and I'll be 58 by the time I graduate. Hey, what's the name for a birthday where you turn the same age as the year you were born? (I was born in 1956.)Maybe there isn't a name for it...

Anyway, I'm not sure when placing a fleece before the Lord fell out of favor, but that was the only thing I could think of to do concerning nursing school. "Lord, if this isn't completely crazy and You think it's an okay idea for me to go to nursing school, please open the door. If it IS crazy and doesn't have Your support, PLEASE don't let me get through that door, no matter what!" I want the Lord to protect me from myself! So now I have to believe He is okay with it and therefore I believe He will provide for my family as I cut back on work hours and spend many hours in study. Here we go, Lord! (Well, next Fall!)

Time to dust off the Anatomy and Physiology textbook to refresh my memory and maybe I'll also dig into the Medical Terminology book I got last fall and get a head start. Prayers appreciated!

Shalom, y'all!


  1. Good job, Lisa! Who cares how old we are when we do things, right? You'll be a fantastic nurse!

  2. Thanks, Pom! I'm gonna try very hard! :D
