It's Monday!

Yup...Monday is here. Whoda thunk it?

Well, I had my first class this morning (2 Samuel) and it went well so far. We actually went over the last few chapters of 1 Samuel because we didn't get them finished last semester. I guess it is to remind us of what is going on, to lead us into 2 Samuel. Fun stuff!

Tonight I have a class that will be 2 hours 45 minutes long on Worldview. I'm not looking forward to this class because of what I've heard from the students who took it last semester. It's going to be hard stuff...but this is a course that everyone has to take before they graduate and you can only take it in 3rd or 4th year. Fun times ahead in that class I'm sure...NOT!

I got my marks back and did a little better than I thought, praise God. For my drawing class I got A-, Reformation of Europe I got B (didn't think I'd get anything over a C or C+), Colonial America was B- (again, didn't think I'd get anything over C or C+), 1 Samuel I got B+, and my Advanced Hebrew I thought I failed (the final exam was worth 50% of our mark and I didn't think I passed because there were a lot of words that I didn't know), but I ended up with a B- which is a nice surprise. My GPA is 3.07, which is down more than I like but it still gives me a B average, which is what I have maintained throughout university thus far.

So, praise God that He gave me strength to deal with the marks. Praise God that I did a little better than I thought. Priase God that I still have hope that I'm not a failure (LOL). Praise God for helping me through this situation, and praise Him that He will be with me in this semester.

I am only taking 3 courses this semester (2 Samuel, Worldview and Communication Disorders) so that should help cut down on the stress. Though from my understanding with Worldview, that alone will give me grief and stress just trying to do all the papers and such that go with it. That will need prayers I'm sure.

Thank you all for your prayers and encouragement with regard to my previous post. You guys are really encouraging and I greatly appreciate it. You guys rock!

Have a Christ filled day!

I'm glad that your marks are good, but with the upcoming classes, don't speak death! If you accept that the class is going to give you grief and stress just trying to do all the papers and such....then that is what you will get.

Remember we only accept good gifts and grief and stress are not on that list! Don't receive them!

Praise the Lord! That is so awesome. See, you worried for nothing! I never do that.

I knew you'd do better than you were thinking. Praise God indeed and congradulations. I get this feeling thought that you are going to like world views. It's not something that people like, but it's an important topic today for us Christians.

Again, praise God in the highest.

"My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, my spirit rejoices in God my savior.

For he has looked with favor on his lowly servant. From this day all generations will call me blessed. The almight has done great things for me and holy is His name. He has mercy on those who fear him in every generation."

In the name of Your son, Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God now and forever. Amen.
