Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept for you in heaven, who by God's power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 1 Peter 1:3-5

Catch up

It would be pretty silly for me to just say it's been a long time since I've posted because that is a gross understatement. Needless to say a lot has happened in my life since then. Funny, in some ways it feels like I haven't done much at all since my last post. Still, I will try to bring you up to speed.
I was visiting my family in Kansas last time I posted, and I ended up returning to Louisville about mid-January. For the next three months solid I worked 6 days a week on finishing up the online course I have been taking for medical transcriptioning. I am glad to report that just this past weekend I took the final and am awaiting the results! A friend asked me if I felt any different now that I'm finished and I think I was being a weirdo when I said no. I wasn't really having a good attitude because I should be thrilled to be done. This has been, honestly, one of the most intensive, self-disciplined 3 1/2 months of my life and it's truly a gift from the Lord that I was able to work on it so consistently and for so long and not get burnt out. So, looking back I am much more thankful for being (nearly) at the end of this long road. I prayed so much for the Lord to help me persevere with this and He really did and so for that I am thankful and praise Him for His kindness. I should know the scores in less than two weeks, and barring how well I did, I will hopefully have a job very soon. I am now praying that I will find the perfect job for me quickly and that it may have the flexibility I am looking for.
As far as Lakeshore goes, out church is taking several trips down there over the next several months and I am excited at the prospect of hopefully being able to go on most of them. I have entertained thoughts of going back for a number of months, but as of yet do not see that as a viable possibility, at least for this summer. I do miss it a lot, but am also enjoying life here.
The Fullerton family, the family I live with, is doing well. Christy, the wife, has recently finished her chemotherapy treatment and her body is now able to begin slowly recovering from the havoc wreaked on it for the past 6 months. The Lord has been gracious. This family is so dear to me; they have been an immense blessing in my life and have do so much for me.
Well, I think that's about it for now. Told you it wasn't too much.
