Shameless brag

Some of you might remember four posts I wrote back in August which were eventually edited and submitted as an assignment for a course I was doing at Trinity@Night. The topic was "The Impact of the Gospel on the Daily Life of a Wife and Mother". If you're interested, you can read the posts in order here, here, here and here.

Anyway, since some of my regular commenters gave me so much wonderful feedback, I thought I'd let you know that I received the marked assignment back last week and I got a Distinction (the highest mark possible)! My lecturer commented, "Really good work, I think. You communicate well and your ideas are FULL of the gospel!" So thanks for all your feedback, especially to you Amy and Andrea.

Not only that, but today I got my assignment for the other subject I was doing at the same time, on the topic "How does God's covenant with David in 2 Samuel 7 fit in with 'the story of the Bible'?" Another Disctinction! And not only that, but the lecturer had this comment for me: "Crystal clear, biblical, well-researched answer to the essay question. Have you thought of doing something more challenging at TTC? Say Grad Dip units? Look into it!" This was a wonderful commendation to receive for my efforts.

So I am very proud to announce that I will be graduating from the Certificate in Christian Studies at the same graduation ceremony as my husband receives his Masters of Divinity (well, he still has to pass this last semester's subjects, but I'm not too worried about him.) Hooray for us!

Congratulations, Sharon! You earned it!
God has a way of stretching us on to the next assignment (or calling). I'm a little nervous this week because our pastor asked me to share in church (3 minutes) about my daily "coffee with the Lord" routine that I have in the mornings. I think I can manage a 30 minute talk better than a 3 minute one. Three minutes doesn't give my nerves long enough to settle down!
I'll pray for you when I meet with the Lord, and especially ask for his guiding hand on you as you consider how best to serve Him publicly and privately.

This's awesome (although not surprising to me - I can tell that you excel here)! What a reward for your thought and effort. It's so nice that you'll be able to finish along with your dh!
God is good and He continues to do good things through you....

Wonderful! I can't wait to see how God will further use your gifts and dedication to further His kingdom. : )
