Oh what a day. I've been so anxious to see where I placed in this RN class of . I'm not even sure why. I mean really, what difference did it truly make. I guess in a way it'd bring me pride to place highly but I knew it wouldn't change my decision to start school back as soon as June.

I got the news.

I placed 9th out of 30.

I was astonished.

I'm very proud of myself.

I'm more confused than ever.

I've come so far and learned so much and it shows.

Even still, my husband feels I should wait. I have to say I have much peace with that. So what I have done is postpone my placement until the September term. This still gives me the option of going back to nursing school if we decide this is where God is leading me and gives me the summer off to rest and pursue other dreams.

I never knew it'd be this hard.

Dear Jenileigh, Getting 9th place is pretty amazing. What is even more amazing is your willingness to postpone, something you've been waiting for, and letting God guide you further.

When we moved from one state to another, it was extremely difficult to find a teaching job. They were laying off teachers throughout the state, because of finances. I was beside myself when I couldn't get another teaching job.

Eventually, God got me to the point where I wasn't defined by whether I was a teacher or not. It was at that point, when it didn't matter so much, that God gave me an ideal teaching position.

I'm so impressed by your willingness to be open to God's timing and plan. I wish I could say I had been more willing, myself, but God eventually got me to that point. Debbie Seiling
