A Reason for Reading

Ok, I have a confession to make: I haven't been blogging much lately. I'm averaging 6 hours of sleep a night for the past six weeks, and spending most of the rest of my time holding a baby, nursing, directing housework and schoolwork (or attempting to do so), and trying to catch up on the many tasks I couldn't do during the end of pregnancy and recovery. But mostly it's the lack of sleep. Anyway, my apologies and gratitude to anyone who is still checking here for new posts.

Today I come to you with another confession: I've been keeping a dream of mine secret for some time, because I worried that it would look pompous, and also that it would never come true. But I think it's time to share, and let you offer some of your wisdom to help me along. What I've wanted for years is to get a Masters Degree in Theology, and if the opportunity ever becomes available, a Licentiate in Sacred Theology. I know that the two are years off, but maybe it is God keeping them at arms' distance because I am not prepared. Maybe, just maybe, if I make myself ready He will provide the opportunity. So I am going to try to prepare for these studies, and I am asking you for input. What do you think would be the best way to prepare, long term, for those goals?

I'll be honest. I don't know if these desires will ever come to pass. But I do know that studying the faith is always a good thing, so even if I never get to the "goal," the journey will be worth the effort.
