Prayers for travel and exam please
« on: December 24, 2006, 02:34:17 PM »
Dear in Christ,

I am travelling tomorrow to Ohio to visit relatives, and while there I must take a certification exam for my job since I failed my last attempt (we can take the cert. exams at any Thompson Prometric location in the country--pretty neat!)  So I am a bit stressed at the busy schedule in front of me. Please remember me and my wife in your prayers.

In Christ,

Anastasios

May you & yours travel safely...the exam result is linked to confidence and faith, you have both.

Peace and all good be with you and family...

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Lord have mercy!  Let us know how the exam went.  I once had to take a professional exam a second time.  Very nerve racking.

I passed it, thanks be to God.  I am coming home on Sunday.  Will have to take some more exams but that's ok, as having conquered one hurdle I feel empowered to try the others.

I'm back safe and sound. We got in at 3 am.  Contrary to popular belief, driving at least on the highway on New Year's Eve found us battling fewer cars, not hoards of raving drunks.  Of course, maybe we were testing fate and God was being nice to us :)
