School has resumed and so far..well…it’s been a tad stressful. I wasn’t too concerned beforehand because usually the first week is pretty light. Generally they go over the syllabus, get to know everyone, etc. Not with these classes. Nope! Full blown in the first week. This has made it pretty tricky in trying to juggle “motherhood” with school. LOL! But it’s working out. Anyway, speech class started yesterday. I was a little nervous but excited at the same time. I don’t have a problem playing the piano or singing in front of people, but I am apprehensive to speak in front of people. I’m looking forward to gain the necessary skills in this area. My first speech for the class is next Wednesday. It has to be 1-3 minutes long and it has to be about an artifact that means something to me. I have to explain what it is (by showing it) and tell why it’s important to me. My first thought was “My Bible!” What an opportunity! I can totally give my testimony in speech class! At first I thought, ” Well…..hmm. It’s a secular college and I don’t know how that will blow over.” Then Romans 1:16 came to my mind. “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ; for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth;…” There is NO way I am going to pass up this awesome opportunity that the Lord has just plopped in my lap! I am super stoked about it. 😀 Please pray that the Lord will give me the exact words to say. I’ve already had a couple of opportunities to speak with people in the class which didn’t happen in my previous classes. I am praying that I’ll have opportunities to have spiritual conversations with these people. After all, the quarter has only just begun so who knows what the Lord will open up.
