A Strange May Fever

Things are different now.  You are stricken with a strange fever and so are your students.  Oddly, the news fills you all with both dread and exhilaration.  Dread, because there is so much to be done before the end comes.  Exhilaration because of what awaits you on the other side. 

The temptation is to think that these “last days” are irrelevant, even pointless.  But deep down, the importance of finishing well echoes in your mind. 

What is this ailment that looms over you, conveying such a mixture of emotion?  It is…the last day of school!


“Therefore, my beloved brothers, be firm, steadfast, always fully devoted to the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain” (1st Corinthians 15:58).
