Welcome Back To The Grindstone

Since we’re now well back from Thanksgiving break, overloaded with homework, and careening our way into Advent and the Christmas season, I thought this would be a good moment for inspiration.

To offer some, that is (though I wouldn’t mind recieving some, either).

Advent means coming, as I’m sure some of you know. Since we have a lot to look forward to in the coming days – finals, for instance, and, of course more finals, and Christmas break and home at the end of them – it is increadibly easy to lose sight of everything but the pin-prick of light at the end of the tunnel.

So take some extra time out with God in the days ahead. Yeah, I know, you have to study, you have to do this and that and the other thing. (By the way, my name is Kettle. Pleased to meet you.) This is an amazing season with an amazing story and it’s all to celebrate our Creator. I can’t fully comprehend it right now – I’m too lost in homework and doing stuff. I need to start talking to my Creator again.

So how are you doing? I don’t think God cares so much about the ecumenical part, even less about the gramatical – but spiritually, He is concerned with us. That’s amazing, too.
