Favorite Verse

Jeremiah 29:11-14  11 For 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. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.”
After reading Debbie's post I felt the need to insert my favorite Bible verse here and ask if anyone else had a favorite Bible verse they’d be willing to share.  Just whatever verse that resonates with you whether it’s common or rare, it’s the verse that motivates you and inspires you and lifts you up.

Moving on, today I had a great Friday to a fulfilling week of school.  Being a TA (Teaching Apprentice) I was asked to introduce myself to the new second semester sophomore students and get to know them better up in skills lab today.  I helped with proper placement of stethoscopes and verified a few BP’s as the newbies were getting a feel for what to expect.  It was such a great feeling knowing I’m not in their shoes anymore but being able to help them with whatever I can.  I think they’ll feel more comfortable asking me questions and demonstrating my assessment skills better than the instructor.  In about two months I’ll be joining them up on the hospital clinical rotation and helping them approach patients at the bedside with basic CNA skills and beginning assessments.  IT’S GOING TO BE GREAT!

What I’m realizing with my other classes is that instead of working on learning new skills and being checked off on them, we’re doing a TON more book work.  I LOVE book work, yes it’s tedious, yes it’s difficult at times, but I think it’s a great way to reinforce what you know and feel accomplished after you get it done.

Tonight will be my last Friday not working for probably the rest of the semester (until May).  I’ve already placed a call to my hubby at work asking where he’d like to take me for a date night.  I can’t wait to just absorb some time with him!


  1. Ah hubby time, gotta love that when you can get it!! Tonight me, my hubby & my daughter are going to see Red Tails. It was kind of sad, my 15 year old son didn't want to go with us, so weird being just the three of us...Hope you guys have a great time!

  2. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39

  3. I love that verse too! And I comment now!

  4. Candi - How was that movie Red Tails? My 15 year old daughter doesn't care to spend time with her parents either, hopefully it gets better.

    Debbie - What a beautiful verse and promise!

    Dominique - I was listening to Focus on the Family and they had a guest speaker named Lysa Terkeurst she's got an amazing testimony, and that verse spoke to her too.
