Yes, I am so thankful to be able to say that through the Lord's help and by His grace alone, I was able to meet my goal of finishing my formal educational goals by the end of 2010!!! I am so excited!!!
After working through the different challenges that these past couple of years have brought and thinking that I wasn't going to be able to make it by the time I was hoping to (it's difficult to do school when you feel so sick that you can't concentrate or are so weak and tired that you fall asleep in the middle of your books - without having a lot of control over it. Also, it's easy to get frustrated when you wake up on top of your books, pen in hand, a couple of hours later thinking "I can't believe I did that AGAIN!!!")
But, the Lord is faithful who calls us and He has given me strength and perseverence. We can truly do all things through Christ who strengthens us. Praise be to my Lord and Redeemer!
