CEUs

So, I just finished my 30 bi-annual CEUs to maintain my lisensure as a practicing doctor of audiology. 30 hours of work and $180 later, I remember how silly I was to think that when I earned my doctorate that I would never have to go back to school again. Bahahaha! I will be tired all day tomorrow but really needed to get it done and over with and “just do it”, as Sir Nikes-a-Lot says. Glad to be finished. Maybe I can get those Christmas cards out now.

Reminded me of an idea I once held that once I was a Christian, I could skate and not have to do the hard work anymore, just be saved and blessed forever. And while I am saved and blessed, I have wisely realized that we do not work for salvation but certainly need to work on our relationship with our Savior. That is what it is about. My son asked me about the meaning of life last night and was surprised at my fast answer:

1. Close Love Relationship with God.

2. Serve & Love Others.

3. Take Care of God’s World.

Those were our original instructions and I don’t believe they have changed. Those require some effort on our parts. Just like my continuing education unit hours, I must put in this eternally rewarded work also. Not for the blessings, although I am sure grateful for those, but for my love for my Heavenly Father. 😄❤

CEU Days

So, I am up for renewal of my Audiology license and every other year am forced with a smile to do 30 CEUs  (continuing education units).  I can only do 10 hours as day, so am forced to do them as such over a 3 day span to knock them out. It costs a heap of money and is intrusive but I understand why they exist… to make someone money and be a pain in the neck. But I also learn a tad bit. Being a doctor for 15 years, I know a little bit about my profession. I don’t know everything so it is a wee good in a skantish way. But anyway, I am plugging along, getting my first 10 finished and reported today. Two more days of this nonsense to go. Yippee. But as a bonus break because God loves me, we had an extra band practice tonight! Highlight of my study day for sure. We have the best band we have ever had and we are a great, positive family having a whole heap of fun and making the most amazing music together! It is a blessing and and half and I believe God put us together. No doubt in my mind. Thank you, God!❤
