I’m typing out my first blog entry. I never thought that I’d actually have one but I think it’ll be fun, so long as I will keep up with it!! Since I’ve had grammer hammered into my head and I’ve been having essay style writing for the past several weeks I think that it is only right to begin this blog with an introduction. After all, all good writings have an intro, right?
Well, to begin with, I am taking two classes at Luzerne County Community College. One is English Compostion, which is going okay considering my writer’s block that I get many a times, and the other is Elementary Spanish. I am loving my Spanish class and am having a fun time with all the regular verbs and how by just changing one or two letters, the whole meaning of the word can be changed. More on that later. My English Comp is going pretty good as well. I think I still hold an A but I’m a little worried about a test that I’m having on Monday. The paper will be graded on a scale of 1-6, 1-3 score meaning failed and 4-6 meaning passed and will not have to retake the test. I would appreciate some prayer in regards to that.
I am also a Certified Nurses Assisstant at a nursing home in my hometown. I am hoping to go for my LPN but I don’t know how that will work out. In the meantime, I remain at the bottom of the totem pole but I am enjoying my work. I’m feeling a little stressed out because I only get one weekend off a month and I’m working 40 hours a week. Also, my work is not the easiest job in the world and I many a time leave feeling tired and ready to explode. I do enjoy my job though. One of the things that keep me going is having a resident look at me and give a smile or have their faces light up when they see me. It is also nice to hear a resident say “Sarah, I haven’t seen you in a while! Where have you been? I’ve missed you!” That just makes my day!! (It also is extra special when they remember my name!!!)
Another awesome thing that has happened in the recent past is that I am engaged!!!! Yes, it seems impossible but I really am engaged to a wonderful man who is also a student, but at Bloomsburg University. His name is Paul and he is 22 years old. We just celebrated his birthday on November 7th (Happy Birthday Paul!!!). He is studying computer science, more paticullarly, computer programming…I think. I don’t have the brain capacity for the kind of things he does but it’s still interesting to see the “guts” of the program, which to me are nothing but letters, numbers, and symbols but to him are a whole other language!
It’s awesome to see where God has led me and how he is writing my story. He is weaving a tapestry where everything that is going on in my life, Paul’s life, my sibling’s lives, my parent’s lives, etc. are coming together to form a marvelous piece of work. I look forward to when I see the finished piece and not just the strands and knots.
Well, that’s all for tonight. I need to go to bed so that I can get up tomorrow and actually spend time getting to know this awesome God more. I hope to write more! Good night!
“The steps of a man are established by the Lord, when he delights in his way;
Though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong, for the Lord upholds his hand.”
