Ok, so these four emojis basically cover my week !! Super excited, so tired I feel I could sleep for a week, realising I’m a natural nerd, and finally… LOVING every second of it !!
& then there needs to be a blessed emoji in order to convey that emotion. Seriously, how blessed am I to have the opportunity to even do this study !! Finances weren’t looking like they were going to line up for me to be able to do this year long course, but I simply put it in God’s hands… and doors just opened up left, right & center. #Godisgood
This might sound a little cliche, but I have a lot to thank #BethMoore for this week. It was Miss Beth that got me hooked on Bible Study about 4yrs ago now and I didn’t even realise that as I’ve travelled my bible study journey, I’ve excersised crazy good study patterns. Who woulda thought it. The only element about it that doesn’t surprise me is that I have always been very good at making lists, making plans, structuring things etc etc, so my study notes were always along that same vein. English was also my best subject at school (I got that from my Mum, and her Dad, my Grandpa)
When doing my 3 Orientation lectures this week, I was amazed to see that I already did my notes the way they suggested for optimal learning intake. Woot Woot !!
So, THANKS BETH MOORE !!!
Another significant element in my reality for 2016 is that I’m still homeschooling 3 kiddos. So, as a result, sometimes lectures get paused to do a grade 6 spelling test with Master 10. #homeschoollife #balance . The orientation lectures would have actually been really beneficial for the kids to listen to, as they had loads of great info in them. Master 10 probs would have found them a little boring, but the older two, especially Miss 14 would have gained a whole lot from them. Might section off 3hrs next week in order for her to view them. :0)
My first offical lecture today was lesson one of ‘Lessons from Biblical Leaders”. We are looking at Nehemiah. So much goodness found in only the first chapter… and then there’s 7 more lessons on this book…. can’t wait !!! The one thing I’ll need to be careful of though is not letting my hunger for learning get carried away, resulting in me rushing. One of the important learning principles is ‘Space vs. Mass’ – taking small amounts of info in on a consistent basis is best for taking it to your long term memory bank.
Weather-wise, it’s been a very very strange week here in Brisbane. Stinking hot (like 38 degrees) and then muggy/rainy weather for a couple of days. Today is the first ‘ok’ day as far as comfort goes. All I can say is Praise The Lord for Air Conditioners.
What I learnt/was reminded of this week – God’s timing is so mind blowing. I would never have thought that these past 4yrs of bible study was preparing me for Bible College.
What scripture am I soaking in –
