Never Too Old to Learn

After a while (OK, after decades) I've decided to quit making excuses, I have officially enrolled in college!!  I LOVE to learn, I am constantly teaching myself new things.  I really enjoy researching, studying and challenging myself.  I truly believe God always intended for me to further my education.  I could list all the reasons why I haven't already attended, but in reality they are just excuses

For example:
1. It costs too much
2. I'm busy raising my children
3. I have too much to do
4. Insecurity regarding my abilities
5. It will take too long
Basically it was a fear of failure, something I'm not fond of.  I've also come to realize it was a lack of faith.  I could feel the Holy Spirit's leading in regards to school, but it was easier to make excuses than to step out in faith.  I did my research, made phone calls, went to college interviews and talked with my partner, encourager, best friend, husband - Bear (all the same person!).  After all the research and a lot of prayer along with the support of my wonderful friends, my sweet kids and that wonderful man I call mine, I took a giant step of faith and I'm following where He will lead. 

I am beyond excited and so eager to get started.  I am a born again Christian but it still surprises me when God lifts me up through these uncharted territories and smiles when I answer His call.  Sometimes you have to get through the 'stressing' to receive the 'blessing'.
