Returning to college
« on: November 17, 2011, 07:12:11 PM »
I decided about two weeks ago to return to school. One application later I got sucked into a whirlwind of FAFSA paperwork, hunting down high school transcripts (still not completely done yet, my freshman year records are completely missing and the school I graduated from had some drama that means that all my pre-junior year records are non-existent as far as the school is concerned), and other fun stuff of this nature.

I start classes Monday. Prayer greatly appreciated.

Oh, no: I've succumbed to Hyperdoxy!

Lord have mercy!
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
