I’ve Got My Associate In Theology Degree!
I graduated this last weekend with my Associate In Theology Degree!
I may or may not go for a Bachelor’s later, I need a break to figure things out.
I definitely want to take some Hebrew classes online first.
I may go back to teach one of the courses next year, I haven’t hashed all the details out yet but that would be fun and it would pay a little money too.
In a couple weeks I’ll apply to receive my ministers license and then who knows what?
I’ve sort of already got my own little Trichotillomania Christian ministry happening here and on Facebook, I’m anxious to see where the Holy Spirit leads me next.
I would like to help others with trichotillomania see their worth and value and I’m not sure what that looks like yet.
My real dad came to my graduation which was really awesome.
He left when I was really little and I haven’t only seen a few times since then.
A few months ago he wrote me and told me he was coming.
What was really special was that he gave me my grandma Tina’s ring that he had found cleaning out her house.
It’s a 14K gold ring with the name JESUS. ❤ Just my style.
My grandma Tina passed away a couple years ago and I never really saw her much.
My mom says “she tried to kidnap me too many times.” 🙄
I remember going places with my grandma (or maybe I was kidnapped, I don’t know).
One of my only memories is of me playing with a “SheRa” doll at her house.
It was my only toy at her house.
That’s about all I remember.
My dad said that he could sense her presence at the graduation, I’m glad it made him feel good to be there.
Funny thing about him showing up though, my mom didn’t recognize him at all.
He walked right up to her and said “hello” to which she replied “hello” and that was it.
He kept looking at her and she sort of got rude with him and said, “do I know you?”
It was hilarious.
I said, “Mom!”
She said, “What?!”
Once I figured out she wasn’t joking, I told her who it was and laughed really hard.
My step dad didn’t recognize him either.
30 years is a long time.
It was a real blessing for me to get to see him.
I have to admit though, a part of me was very sad when he left.
He always says “I’ll be back soon!” but then years go by…
I hope he really comes back soon. 😢
Either way, I’m really grateful he came and I’m glad I got to see him.
I’m done with school (at least for now), I guess I’m going to see where the Spirit takes me!🤷
I would eventually like to make some sort of online Christian therapy videos to go with my therapy journal but I haven’t got the whole thing sorted out just yet.
