“Stuffy–I’ve been sick.”
And there were a few more like that.
Many of them made a good attempt at quality, daily time with God. Many of them wanted to find peace and quiet and contemplation…but they are teenagers and some of them are busier than I am.
“Let’s keep working at it. Let’s work to find some peace this week,” I suggested.
“Finals are coming up…” One of the high school girls said.
“Don’t remind me,” replied another.
“There’s an academic meet this weekend.”
“I have a million things due on the same day, I think.”
I’m praying for them this week. It’s hard to Advent during the busiest month of the year.
Come, Lord Jesus!
