Final Countdown (Whoa!)

Well, classes officially began Monday, August 29th. So far, so good. I am enrolled in three classes. Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9 to 10am I am taking Social Work 310 . We have four short papers due in that class, and since I am notorious in handing in late papers (at lest that's the way it was LAST semester) , I am throwing around ideas for all four, they all must be related anyway. Monday's from 4 - 5 pm I have HFD 494, a seminar class in which each week we have a guest speaker talk about the different careers one can do with an HFD minor. Finally, I will be doing yet another internship (HFD 490) at the Learning and Belonging (LAB) Preschool on the UM campus. It is a preschool I have interned before, but I enjoyed the people and children so much, I couldn't resist working there again. (I am praying it turns into something more than an internship, but where ever God leads I'll gladly follow)
The first day of my last semester. A phase of life finally coming to a close. (Did I jsut say finally?Ha, if you only knew how long I have been in college!) Whoa. I couldn't get that out of my head all day Monday, even as I was sitting in class listening to profs. Oh yea, and "Yikes! I haven't even looked into prospective employment yet!". Guess I better start looking in the newspapers and on the web!
I realized too, that the phrase"first day of school" will take on a whole new meaning for me come the time I start to work. It will be different for me in that I will be teaching, and not the one being taught, although little ones tend to teach me things about life that I often take for granted. But more on that in a later blogpost.
My plans for the future are in God's hands. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I have my dreams and long to see them come to fruition, but not if God doesn't have a part in them. I'm sure everyone knows it, but it is my desire to teach 3, 4, and 5-year old preschoolers. The ideal classroom would be one that fosters Inclusion---teaching students with disabilties in the same classroom as those without disabilities. If the Lord wills that I stay in Montana for it, Which I hope He does, I 'd love Him for it. Somewhere down the road, I wouldn't mind substitute teaching (that way I can teach a variety of different grades) if I ever get tired of or feel like I can't handle the little anklebiters anymore...HA! Like that would ever happen!!!

Last nights first Chi Alpha meeting of the semester was awesome as we had just about every seat in our room filled. Something I had been praying about a long time. For those who missed out, the message came out of Mark 12:28-31. My two two favorite points were "Lord, teach me how to love you heart, soul, mind, and strength" and "God is straining to have a relationship with you!".

    Gee. Comment spam is SO rude. I think it's worse than email spam. I've seen blogs with it on the tagboard too. Seriously, do these people think that anyone is going to click on the site and BUY stuff from them?!
