Sherlene: 2019 Spring Semester College Students and Their Assigned Majors

Due to the current partial government shutdown, I am suggesting that all students verify with their attending colleges whether their selected academic major-of-completion still exists. Contact your assigned academic advisor or the onsite registrar's office to verify, before attending this upcoming spring semester. 
Do you know whether there has been a decline of enrollment of your said major? How many students were in each of your classes, during the winter semester?
Be cautious of any major program that you have noticed a decline of course choices, especially courses that are normally available at the main campus of your college. Most often, courses are being canceled due to a lack of student enrollees [in a specific major program].
Often, colleges will comment to their students that they will allow current enrollees the opportunity to complete their degree programs. If a major program closes, most accredited colleges will allow you to complete its program of study--even if you …

Sherlene: Dear Federal Government Workers

Dear Federal Government Workers, I have empathy for what you are going through right now. I worked for the government for several years--regardless of whether employment verification is given. You should really get one of them to prove to your debtors the severity of this partial government shutdown. How does it feel to work every single day and not have a paycheck, feels like volunteerism right? Oh, and if I were you I would keep a separate timesheet journal to include in your work portfolio. Let's hope that no one steals your work portfolio--like another internal government employee of your career industry.

How can you prove that you work for the government when you aren't getting a paycheck?  I guess you could prove it by your tax return is what several federal workers told me. Just keep in mind that a tax return doesn't formally identify your job title with the organization. In other words, an IRS representative will not be able to determine you what you are doing, wh…

Sherlene: A Christmas Poem of the Charity of Kindness

Most American and International Christian families will continue the Christmas season through January 6, yearly: the feast of the Epiphany. Does it bother you to realize that we participate in an international faith of Jesus's vision of the meaning of the system of Church? Does it bother you to understand that Jesus (God in flesh) is not an American? The bible reveals to us that God is a spirit that is above all things. He is above the seven continents, and above the seven heavens. God, the Holy Trinity of God, is above all things, on purpose. The bible describes his distance between the planets as a distance that can never ever be reached: He is way above the known planets; way above the formation of any new planets of our planet system classifications.
In concluding our fellowship devotion time of the year of 2018, we have discussed and reviewed several books of the Old Testament scriptures of the bible (Genesis - Obadiah, KJV). Some actions that were consistent in our teaching…

Sherlene: Wintry November Poems

November comes,
And November goes with the last red berries and the first white snows,
With night coming early and dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket and frost by the gate.
The fire burn and the kettle sing,
And earth sinks to rest until next spring. -Elizabeth Coatsworth

Nature's first green is [actually] gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay. -Robert Frost

For this new morning and its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For every gift His goodness sends we thank Thee, gracious Lord. Amen. -Author Unknown

Sherlene: Let The Holidays Begin

This is the time of year when tree leaves are offering a pallet of colors. The invisible wind passes by with a dance that makes things just twirl or sway.
Store brands are preparing now for the upcoming holidays by offering holiday-store sales earlier. It seems like such ads are distributed earlier every year to compete for our purchases.  Black Friday sales are happening before its actual November event. Online shoppers are getting excited for the added discounts that the season offers.
Seasonal job seekers are coming on board much earlier. I think it's a good idea; it allows such employees to learn the store environment to provide better customer service and to restock or discard outdated items available. Some short-term employees may even be invited to remain with a company and transition as one of its actual part-time or full-time associates. When a seasonal employee, it is always wise to budget accordingly, and don't overspend unnecessarily. Also, it is a good idea to inclu…
