Okay so if you haven't noticed I have posted 3 blogs in one day, I just didn't want to put them together, but I wanted you to know about the different things in my life.
TJ and I like to go on adventures, so we drove by this old house, that has been beaten up and abandoned, so we walked through it, exploring every corner, wondering why people would destroy such a beautiful house... anyway, after that we went to an abandoned orange grove, and picked our fair share of oranges... which was a blast climbing trees, and eating delicious sweet oranges. All that to say TJ and I have lots of fun... :). We are growing in our marriage, and learning to honor God in our relationship with each other.
I am also really enjoying the Bible study I am involved with many other women, we are doing the bible study "Breaking Free" by Beth Moore, and it is really fantastic, and applicable, and it's really neat just to hear other people's testimonies, and experience with how God has worked in thier life.
That's life for now
On January 12th, the day after TJ and I arrived back to Florida I started a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) program. It was six weeks long, so I have just finished it. I am doing the Patient Care Technician (PCT) program though, so the next class will be advanced nursing program, which is six weeks, and then the last class will be EKG and Phlebotomy, the whole program is 18 weeks, I am 6 weeks down, 12 to go. My main purpose in doing this is to get some medical training, knowledge and experience to assist TJ and I on the mission field, so after I am done with this program, I hope to get a job somewhere to put this training into practice.
I have to be honest, I didn't really like the CNA class that much, because it was all about taking care of the elderly, and how to do it JUST RIGHT! :)... but it was humbling, we did have to do clinicals so we spent days in hospitals, long term living facilities, and rehab. But am trusting God that this is where He has me right now, and he knows how he is going to use it.
School is Monday through Thursday 8-2, so after that I drive about 2 minutes to work at a Christian DayCare and that is from 2-5:30, so it works out well, and also helps with some expenses.
Sorry that I have not updated for so long... my life has been crazy. TJ and I had a really nice time with my family over Christmas break, it was refreshing, and gave me, personally a good little boost. It also game me a little more of a chance to say goodbye in a way to the place that has always been my home. Now my home is wherever TJ is, which isn't necessarily anywhere in particular, which is a reminder to me that my home is not here on earth, but in heaven with my heavenly father.
