I talk in a wisper these days.....

It's been a while since I have posted. We recently moved to a live-in suite/extended stay motel and are planning to "hit the road" when we are led to do so. Thus far we were able to pack all that we needed, including cooking supply into our small black car. We have visited one http://www.ncfic.org/church-network style church and it has been a blessing. It is nice to attend smaller churches because the people will have an opportunity to know one's name. Some people consider "frequent movers" as living off the tracks, but I say its better to live in the spirit than to stay stuck in the mud ;)_

Speaking of whispering, I lost my voice because I have been having a cold that has centered its location in my throat for the past couple of weeks. Readers be praying for healing...... Also, even though I have the loss in my voice it has caused me to recognize my need for more prayer and submission!! Hooray for those needs in my life. Loosing my voice is nothing new to me, as I used to participate in a lot of speaking events....from drama to speech contest in high-school in the public school system.....so it often seemed my colds would some how find me in the event that I would need to give a speaking oration of some sort.

By the way, I wonder if there are some women in some cultures where unassisted birth is the norm that whisper when they give birth rather than scream at the top of their lungs. Just think how much extra energy they conserve by holding their tongue.....

Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!

Free college courses

Want to get college education for free?? If you are a self motivated person, it is entirely possible!!

Its possible with online technology and public library as resources. If you live near a university, it is rather easy to form your own syllabus (a piece of paper that guides a person through plan for the class schedule) and book reading list. However, if you would like someone to evaluate your English writing skills and presentation the best way to conclude that you have succeeded is by economic or popularity standards.....ie. lots of folks visit your blog or other such things.

Of course many of us have heard of the liberal version of the public education television. Many of the ivy league colleges and state colleges offer open course ware as well. Here is an example:



Good luck! And happy studying.

Of course, over all, the best resource for education is the bible as a manual.....other than that, its up in the air as far as knowledge is concerned.
