From a Creighton Student's Perspective
December 3rd , 2007
Senior, Theology Major (Pre-Med)
It’s that time of the year again! End of the semester tests, papers, quizzes, and projects are in full swing. To be honest, I don’t like this time of the school year. So much has happened in this semester, but I don’t have time to slow down and reminisce. That is especially important this year as a senior, as I prepare to graduate in May. I’d love to curl up with my journal and a cup of hot Good Earth tea and write for hours. I’d love to be able to pull out my crafting supplies and create pages for my art journal. I’d love to be able to have time to have a big sleepover with my girlfriends and catch up on life over a bottle of wine. Unfortunately, that will all have to wait until after finals are over. It’s but it’s hard to find the time to look back when you’re just trying to survive the schoolwork of the day.
Maybe it was my stressed out brain, but the readings for today didn’t speak to me as they sometimes do. I did, however like this line:
Right now I need to be reminded to take refuge in God in my own stormy time of finals. To take a deep breath and realize that this is a stressful time, but it’s going to be okay! God will take care of me and be there right by my side through the ups and downs of these next two weeks. What a great comfort!
Both my mom and a good family friend emailed this prayer to me recently. It now hangs above my bed as another reminder of God’s presence. During these last few weeks of the semester, I’m going to make sure that I read it every day.
With God at our side, we’re all going to make it through!
