Greetings! It's been a year, but I'm back full time... I hope! I recently retired from public school administration, so that I can focus on my seminarian work.

What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday 525
I just completed my second year of Seminarian work, and am working on my third and last year. In January I will be taking my General Ordination Exam (GOE), and God willing, will be ordained as a deacon by the Summer of 2020. Being retired, will allow me to focus on my studies.

Retiring will also allow me to spend sometime on my artwork, which I neglected during the last 2 years, due to my overwhelming work load. My goal is to become a bi-vocational priest, since my artwork provides me with relaxation and a time to recharge, since I'm an introvert. God willing it will also provide me with some income to supplement my livelihood.

I don't know where God will have me go, but I believe it'll be perfect. As is written in Jeremiah 29:11, '"I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord. "Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future."' Amen!

That's not the only change in my life! My youngest daughter just got engaged, and my family and I could be happier for her. He is a fine young man, who is very respectful of my daughter, has excellent family values, has a college degree, is hard working, and most importantly, he's a Godly man!
