Forever student

I love studying biology. Yes, I know I'm a typical biology major, but I feel that the more that I study about biology, the more I realize how little I know, and how much I want to know.

My favorite part of the week is my Vertebrate Natural History lab. Wandering outside looking in crevices for lizards, or peering into streams for fish, is so exciting. The intricacies of the animal kingdom are fascinating.

It's a good thing that I have many more years of study ahead of me, because I doubt that I will ever get my full dose of studying in. I think I will be a professional student.

That's why this morning I was so excited to read this excerpt from EGW's Prophets and Kings. She had been describing heaven in glorious detail:
"There every power will be developed, every capability increased. The grandest enterprises will be carried forward, the loftiest aspirations will be reached, the highest ambitions realized. And still there will appear new heights to surmount, new wonders to admire, new truths to comprehend, fresh objects of study to call forth the powers of body and mind and soul." (PK 731)

Can you imagine? Having our whole, uncompromised minds that can soak up every bit of information that we acquire? The greatest thing to look forward to though, is that the Creator of all living things will be our professor.

I hope we are taking a lot of the same classes from Him!!!! I don't think being a student will ever get boring either

Sign me up for that class too! I believe the price is the same for all levels, and that has already been paid! Praise the Lord, Our Creator and Redeemer!

Wow, Martina! How beyond wonderful! Your classes sound amazing, I want to take some like that. I'm loving my classes here at ARISE, too... it really does make me love with all my heart the fact we'll be learning forever. God is truly... past description.

Great pics, Martina! It seems like everyone would benefit from studying biology the way you have.
