Okidoki, so time for one of my brief updates. Hm, that's an interesting word..up date..huh, ok anyway. :) So yesterday I received an acceptance package from the college for the Northern Collaborative Baccalaureate Nursing Program (NCBNP). Can anyone combine yippee and yikes into one word? I'm really happy as you can imagine, and I know I've only made it this far because of the Lord opening all of the necessary doors, and enabling me to go through them. On the other hand I can see that I've got my work cut out for me, but work is a good thing. This experience has often called to mind some of the verses in Psalm 18, especially the part about wall jumping. I shall share some of them with you, as they are always such an encouragement.

For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness. For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall. As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God? It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect. He maketh my feet like hinds' feet, and setteth me upon my high places. He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms. Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great. Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.
(Psa 18:28-36)

Now I just have to figure out which electives I should take, and submit my form with the admission fee before the 28rd and my seat is secured. After that it's on to the criminal checks, the vaccinations, and the health check.

To answer your question Joyce, the sewing is going quite well, although it's on hold for a bit, as the girl's slips I'm making are in need of some lace I'm hoping to order today, or tomorrow online. But having that on hold is no problem for me, as I just started my psychology course last night. It was interesting, and I'm sure it will continue to be interesting, even if I disagree with half of it, if not more than that. :D It amazes me how much further along in knowledge the first guys in psychology would have been, had they simply read the bible, although believing it would have to go in hand with that, or they would have reaped notta.

The lace awaits,
