I am safely back in Holland for the beginning of J-term, a short semester like thingy between Fall Semester and Spring Semester.  It's only two weeks long. I am leaving Monday morning at some point to go somewhere for my class retreat.  It's at a convent in Indiana.  I don't know much more than that.
I do know that I will have very limited internet access.  Even if wireless is available at the convent, I won't be on much because I will be spending time bonding with my class.  That means there will be nothing posted here until Friday the 7th at the earliest.
If you are the praying sort, I would appreciate prayers for this retreat. I am still recovering from my reaction to agave nectar on Thursday, I expect Tuesday and Thursday to be a little rough since those are the days that I decrease the amount of prednisone I am taking. I have come off of prednisone before and it has not been the most pleasant of experiences.  Also I would appreciate prayers that this retreat is a time of bonding and relationship building within my class as well as a time of learning. And one praise to finish this off - As I write this it has been 21 days since my last seizure.  Praise the Lord!
Have a blessed week and I'll post more when I'm back!

Glad to hear you made it back safe...although we are all missing you already! Praying this week will be full of wonderful bonding with classmates, an uneventful weaning from the prednisone and learning in new and precious ways how loved by the Father you are. A convent, eh? I can't wait to hear all about it. I think I may have to start living vicariously through you!! Blessings and love, Ange & the crew
