God's Grace

Monday was my first day back to school and man was it a day! We had our medication calculation test thatwe take the very first day of each semester and must make a 100 on in order to continue in the nursing program. You have 2 attempts every semester to pass, if you aren't successful on the first try you have to take it several days later and it is a huge weight on your shoulders for those days because you know that all of the work you have done hangs on this one test, no one wants to have to take it the 2nd time! Well, of course, I made a silly error on my first one and had to retake it! It is so hard to concentrate on anything else when you have this black cloud hanging over you! My husband posted a lot about my ordeal on FB and had lots of his friends that I do not even know and some of our friends and family praying for me and God's will in the situation. I promise you I felt a peace when I took this test. I still wasn't sure I would pass it, but I just felt like it was all in God's hands. He had opened so many doors for me to get back into school, if he needed to close those doors now I would understand, I wouldn't like it, but I would understand. He has plans that I can never comprehend. There were 12 of us who had to retake this exam and sadly one of us did not pass! I felt so bad for her, I knew what she was feeling, the same all 12 of us had felt for the past 2 days only amplified by a million!

This semester is going to be crazy! We have 3 papers due by mid September, at least 2 test every week (sometimes 3 a week) and 2 days of clinicals! It will be very time consuming! I pray that my family, especially my 10 year old Braxton can be patient and understanding!
