I still have 3 more days of thanksgiving left, and they are really good ones. And I missed a day already, but it’s because I’ve been working hard on a 12 page paper for my Early Church History class. It’s mostly been a really hard process, what with lots of work and personal things going on. Also, I never wrote papers in undergrad, being an engineer and all – it’s not very easy for me!
But just now, I was reading more stuff about early church baptism, and I had a bit of excitement and joy at studying. It really is a privilege to learn. The thought that came to mind was the Eric Lidell quote, ‘When I run, I feel God’s pleasure.’ And I can’t say that all the time about studying or writing, but let the record show, that I think I did just now. 🙂 Either that, or it’s a sugar high from the chocolate chip cookies that a friend just brought by.
I hope I still feel similarly tomorrow when I’m in the home stretch of the paper, and later this week studying for the final!
Back to work.
