#10: January & the Sabbath

It’s been only ten daya since 2014 started but why does it feel like it’s already April or May for me? Hmmm…Have you ever felt like days are swiftly passing by before your very eyes only to find out you are still in the same week or month? A student who just came back from a two-week trip to Europe complained about the amount of work he missed on the first day back after the holidays. Yes, he’s right. We just started school and it feels like we’re in the middle of the semester already. Well, despite of the political unrest in this land, classes still must go on. Our curriculums do not change just because a special day has been chosen to shut the entire city. We still have to complete the required lessons and number of days by working double time within the time frame we have. Yes, we may be making up lost classes later but still it won’t really suffice the “momentum” to study lost. So yes, it maybe just the 10th of January but I already finished everything planned for this week as far as lesson planning is concerned. I like being up-to-date with my work.

Enough of this “work” talk, okay?

Aren’t you glad it’s Sabbath? Well, I am. As I mentioned in my previous Sabbath posts, this is my favorite day of the week. When the sun sets on Friday, my worries and fears “set” too. In other words, the sun carry them away. But when it sets on Saturday, then my troubles began because I am once again back to reality. “Fret not, Shiela, for time will come that we won’t worry about sunsets and all because God’s glory will shine and we’ll forever only think about Him and worship Him. Adios, worries and fears! However, for the mean time let us all enjoy, value, and appreciate this freedom of worship while we still can. Be more diligent in studying His word and memorizing hymns for at the end of days we can’t be running with Bibles and hymnals anymore.

Thank you, Lord, for the gift of worship, Sabbath, and most of all, Jesus Christ. Amen.
