Eureka!!!

"Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at 20 or 80. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young."--- Henry Ford

"Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything learned in school." --- Albert Einstein

Howdy folks? How's the going coming? Anyways school started, so i'm back to the usual grind. It's my last semester as an undergrad, hmmm... Loads to do and loads to look forward to. It is well. I've been job searching like crazy, already browsed thru a dozen school websites, looking for research assistant/ technician/ whatever-it's-being-called-positions at big research universities. All i know is i need a research job at a university after getting my degree. I'm also going to take the MCAT's. YAY!!! Doesn't sound like too much fun, but a gal's gotta do, what she needs to do.

Okay, moving on to more interesting things, i have an idea. That's my Eureka moment right there! I discussed it with Diamond and she thot it was a good idea. I'm looking to start a devotional thingy. I remember when i was still living under my parents roof, every morning at 5 my mum would wake us up for family devotions where we get to study a bible passage and pray together. I so miss those times, 'cos since i left home, i've not had that. I still read my bible and try to have my daily devotions, but sometimes it's just impossible. That's one thing i plan on doing with my BF, having daily devotions. This is how it would work, but everything's subject to change as nothing's set in stone. Everyday, say between 5 and 6 in the morning or whenever it's convenient, we would call in to have devotions. I'm going to see if it would be possible to get a toll free number for interested folks to call in, a conference call thingy, and each person would be issued a password.

We could select bible passages to study for a week, and each day talk about the different parts to the passage. It doesn't have to be som'n elaborate. We could just start by having a daily prayer time, and reading a verse or two, without elaborating on it. Suggestions are welcome. If anyone has an idea of how to get a toll free # for a conference call, please lemme know.

I've had this idea since last year, but shoved it to the back burner. Anyone that's interested or has any idea as to how this should work, should please let me know. I pray we can accomplish it.

The reason i put up those first 2 quotes was 'cos of this retired professor at my department. Let's call him Hissy. Hissy retired after teaching for about 30 years at my school and is a "Professor Emeritus." I'm sure he's in his mid seventies. Anyways, the first time i noticed him was in my Physics class. I'm thinking to myself, "what's this old man doing in our class?" Anyways, the next semester, i met him in my chemistry class. Then i got curious, but didn't say anything, until i saw a plaque in the biology department with his name and picture on it. Then i read a brief bio on him and was WOW-ed. The man comes to class, and he's so humble and all. You never would've been able to tell Hissy was once a prof. in school.

Before i forget, tomorrow's the b'day of a fellow capricornian (BTW, Capricorns RAWK!!!), one of my favorite pals in blogsville, the luff doctor himself. The one and only Naijabloke. May God bless you abundantly and may he grant you the desires of your heart according to his will. Not only will u walk in alignment to God's will for ur life, he'll also grant u the wisdom and understanding to establish it- Amen. That's it folks, hope you guys have a wonderful weekend.

OK since I am naturally unable to keep my mouth shut about all things good, free or cheap - I'll suggest that your devotional group should use skype (or yahoo voice - not quite as good) for your conference calls. Long-time reader, first-time commenter (i think...) Love your blog, you sound so different from the "you" I once knew :)

skype is cool...

That is a good idea you thought of. We can all try to spread the gospel in any way we can. Also help to develop ourselves spiritually.

I am in on it.

I love the two quotes....

I wish you luck on the devotional thingy. Keep us up to date with it.

Meanwhile I don't know why your page can't open from mine. I had to get to yours through Diamond hawk's.
I'm going to add it again to my blogroll (and hopefully it doesn't misbehave again)

Hey girl! Great idea about the daily devotions. I think you should go for it. Wish I could join in, but we are in very different time-zones.
