Just What I Needed to Hear

Today I am back working on my dissertation, and it is so hard to focus.  I have got to get it done, no option not to.  I literally time out in May (i.e. none of my credits will count; I would have to start over).  Of course, I only want to stare at my newborn at the moment, but I really need to buck up and finish what I started-eight long years ago!  Since I started school I got married, had two miscarriages, and had my two sons.  School was meant to be a quick four years, but when we were thrown a curveball we made a new plan.

First things first, today I had to enroll in credit hours.  It made me set up a new password.  I have two favorite bible verses that are always in the front of my mind.  When I could not use these, I drew a blank.  So I picked up my bible.  I decided to look in Philippians.  The first verse I had underlined is the first I read.  "I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work in you will continue to complete it... "

We have a winner!  God is so good!
