Its the 1st of July! Yay! This is the month where I start my first job in my adult life - Psyched!!

The last two weeks were devoted to orientation, during which I met some pretty welcoming folks both in and out of UKentucky. So, during the course of orientation I had a certification class to take and I totally blew it! Well not quite - but I mean I had more incorrect answers than most if not all of my peers during the exercise. I was upset and discouraged all at once. Work didn't even start yet and the thought of being an incompetent physician was scary enough!

The upside to this event was, I picked up my books and started studying all over again! Way to learn from my mistakes. So on that note I think I've matured a little, instead of playing the blame game, I simply  chose to move on and make it bigger and better next time.

...But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles, run and not fail ...


Only Time

I am in a happy place, thank you Jesus! The last couple of months have gone by so fast, I cant recollect it all. After completing med school in January I have pretty much been on my own schedule ever since. I did increase in knowledge about life not so much academia. It was like a catch up phase for all the times spent buried in my books. A perfect late balance. Yes! Sometimes I cannot multitask!

During the last couple months, I found out ill be training at UKentucky/St Claire's Family Medicine RTT. I was psyched up when I first got the news and I still am! Then I went back home to Cameroon to visit family and readjust my visa status to that appropriate for this kind of work in the US. That was one heck of a fun visit to say the least, but I am glad I got to bond with my mother again!

So this very second, I am at the new location in Lexington and looking forward to what seems like a future full of surprises. I have to meet new people, find a new church, acquire seniors and new bosses, live in a new community that looks nothing like Maryland, Chicago, Curacao, Douala or any of the other places I've lived in. So its worth keeping record of and I would!

On that note, lets see what the future holds indeed.

Proverbs 3:5-6

New International Version (NIV)
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.[a]



In my ignorance we remembered you  here
Meanwhile miles away you drawed nigh to HIM a few hours later
You were on your way home, to a safe haven
In the bossom of the most high you find your rest now, a place with no sickness

Though we are left with tears and sorrow
I also remember the good you left with us
Word, guidance, knowledge and praise you thought us
You are in a better place, a safe heaven
Though it hurts, our hearts are stirred on the bread of life

May your beautiful wife and four children find their comfort in the Lord!

1 Corinthians 15:54-58

New American Standard Bible (NASB)
54 But when this [a]perishable will have put on [b]the imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, “(A)DEATH IS SWALLOWED UP in victory. 55
