Summer 2011

Well, I thought that Summer School would be easy. A quick 4-week class and it would be a piece of cake. Yeah right! Oops! I did not realize that a 16-week class could actually be crammed into 4 weeks, but they did it.

I took Introduction to World Religions and thought that I was going to have to drop the class. It was Monday through Thursday, 3 hours a day, with 3 to 4 hours of reading and another 3-4 hours of note taking for me. My eyes were tired and my hands were getting weak, but my husband would not let me give up. With his encouragement, and a lot of prayer, I pushed on to complete the course.

There was a daily essay quiz, 2 written papers (minimum of 5.5 pages) due by the end of the course and a final written essay examine. I was not sure what grade I would receive, as I did not have very much confidence in my writing skills after 20 years out of school. Well, the day of the final exam, I prayed before leaving the house, I prayed before getting out of my car and I repeated “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!” – all the way to class from the parking lot.

Ten days later I checked my grades at the school’s records and admission office. To my surprise, but relief and much joy, I received an A in the class. The Lord is truly blessing me and sustaining me, as I give myself no credit for this accomplishment. I give all praise, honor and glory to God!

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!”
