And So It Begins

Standard

Now that we’re all back on campus, we students are all dusting off our planners and looking at what’s due over the next 16 days.

All of our jaws dropped. For a horrible moment our hearts stopped and sunk into our stomachs, overwhelmed by the sheer volume of tasks that needs to be completed before school ends on the 12th. A few of us required defibrillation. I may or may not have been one of that number.

We have struggled our way to this moment. We have climbed the Caradhas and battled goblins, slogged through the Dead Marshes and lost ourselves in Emyn Muil. Now the last stretch of the journey has arrived: the potentially fatal climb up the sides of Mount Doom.

Alright, maybe we’re in no physical peril, but our G.P.A.’s face certain doom if we lose it in these next sixteen days.

It’s times like these that you have to remember that while God may not carry your workload for you, He will carry you.

  1. Hopefully there will be a slight lifting of spirits on Friday… Would that be Lothlorien? Or more like a stop in Gondor with a good steward of the city in charge?

  2. God is good all the time. One assignment and one class period at a time, and soon all will be done. Remember the amazement and the feeling of Mount Everest on your back when you received all of your syllabi at the beginning of the semester? That’s how you got to where you are now. . . one assignment and one class period at a time. Those syllabi are well over 3/4 done. We can do this last little bit with His help. Isn’t it wonderful that He is with us all the time and has promised never to leave us or forsake us!

Ramble back at me...
