I hope I can skip March! But March likes me so much! Yes, March is a female. March is not a month! Since she likes me so much, why not I give her a chance? Through communication, I will know the strengths and weaknesses of March. March gives me piles of piles of assignment. Instead of mourning, I would prefer to stand on top of the mountain and shout I LOVE YOU! March is testing my passion. I am neither fragile nor vulnerable. Passion will blaze within me. Assignments bring me no time to decode novels. No worries, 5 pages a day is enough. Instead of blaming March, I will try my best to appreciate you, March! March, you will be fixated by me on “learning” rather than “earning”. March is the deadlines. Where would I be without deadlines? If I turn in my assignments after the deadline, imagine how crocodile is chasing me and I jump into the pond. In the midst of trial and turbulence, I meditate:
The Lord is my light and my salvation whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the rampart of my life; I will not be afraid.
When the wicked rush at me to devour my flesh,
It is my foes who stumble, my enemies fall.
Though an army encamps against me, my heart will not fail;
Though war break out against me, I will still be confident.
One thing I ask of the Lord, one thing I seek
That I may dwell in his house all the days of my life,
To gaze at his jewel and to visit his sanctuary.
For he will keep me safe in his shelter
In times of misfortune;
He will hide me beneath his roof,
And set me high upon a rock.
Then my head will be lifted up over the enemies round about me.
I will offer sacrifices at his Tent with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make music in praise of the Lord.
Hear my voice when I call, O Lord,
Have mercy on me and answer.
My heart says to you, I seek your face, O Lord.
Do not hide your face from me nor turn away your servant in anger.
You are my protector, do not reject me
Abandon me not, O God my savior!
Though my father and mother forsake me,
Yet will the Lord receive me.
Teach me, O Lord your way; lead me along a straight path.
Save me from the plot of my enemies,
For false witnesses have risen against me
to pin me down in their violence.
I hope, I am sure,
That I wil see the goodness of the Lord
In the land of the living
Trust in the Lord, be strong and courageous
Yes, put your hope in the Lord
(PSALM 27: 1-14 )
