It's Friday and I am linking up with the Ladies from Lisa-Jo Baker's blog. We like to write. And I like that I write just five minutes-stream of conscious-and I have a blog post. Otherwise . . .
Please forgive me for touting myself today, besides the glorious, long-awaited sun shining on the lilac blossoms ready-to-burst and the cool breeze floating through the window as I write stirring up all natural jubilation, I have something else on my mind and it is sure to show itself as I write.
When the path is before you, but the way darkened, and the only step before you is the one illuminated- You must be BRAVE.
The act of bravery is a relationship: one of believing and one of acting upon.
Twenty months ago, I entered the college classroom. I was not "going back" to school, rather "going" to school. For twenty years I have been raising my wee ones, placing them on the path to adulthood, now I was about to step onto a diverging path. I was not sure if I could make it through one semester. But with faith, grace, and a lot of encouragement from family-and patience because of eating too many take-out meals, I am able to finish and earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, History, and Women's Studies. The theme of my LAS degree is "The Influence of Women Upon Culture." Fast and furious-sometimes my motto.
Graduation is tomorrow. Can you read my big smile?
I believe it is part of His plan and I am taking the step forward.
I am being brave.
All by grace,
