In church this morning we studied the end of Luke chapter 12: the lesson of the good servants who were watchful for their master's return. They weren't reclining in the living room watching TV and waiting around lazily for the master's arrival. Instead, they were right there, at the door, impatiently waiting. And when the master returned, he was so moved that he served the servants.
I want to be watchful like this.
I don't want to be served, but I know that I would want to be greeted with love and welcome ^__^

It's hard though, because I feel like there is a lot I need to do yet. Really, though, what more can I do? If there is no end to knowledge, then why should I strive to learn everything? And if I cannot do anything to change the past, why do I worry so much about the picture my life makes? I suppose it's just hard to comprehend the king's return when you have never seen Him.

In the world of coursework, I was kept busy today. Lots of online discussion boards for 650 and 601. I really don't like online coursework at all. Not that I love in class essays, but I take so much time trying to come up with responses to posts... It feels like my time is being wasted sometimes because it takes me so long.

For dinner I made a tasty broccoli-cheese-onion-omelet. Actually there was more broccoli than egg, but that's not important ^___~ Then I feasted on boiled chestnuts for dessert! My jaw hurts so much from cracking them and working at getting all the tasty nut inside. I have some left, but...my jaw...

Tomorrow is Ruth chapter 3 - *cheers* Then, html lab for LBSC690! It should be fun! Too bad the rest of my week is looking scary...presentations, essays, lots of ugly stuff due. I am trying not to think about that too much. Actually, my brain refuses to think deeply about anything in response to the work I did today. :p

And all my fun readings are still here untouched. 'Noooes!!1!'

Tomorrow night I really need to finish Leviticus... It's not that I don't like it, but soon-due schoolwork unfortunately has to come first. ;_; Silly schoolwork interrupting my Bible time! *shakes fist*

Did I mention that the sky today had lovely white clouds? :)
