His Wisdom, My Help!!

It's interesting how lately I've been looking for ways to "make" my life comfortable, with respect to finding those things that make me happy. And it dawned on me that my current state of mind has nothing to do with unfulfilment, but rather actively making God proud with the skills He's given me. So after a short talk last week with a certain Mr. A, concerning "what it is I'm good at" I decided to pay the library an overly due visit (of many years - as a researcher I am truly embarrassed to say for how long I've been away).

Funnily enough I am of the "school of thought" that I can get whatever I want from the Internet (journals, index, book reviews, data...) and that going to the library was a waste of my time. However "something in my spirit" suggested i go pay the library a visit. After 4 hrs I was hooked. The tranquility of it all. The new findings/ discoveries, the empty board you can sit across and stare at as you try solving "that" theorem/algorithm/network diagram. Yes, that room that is not like your office. No phone lines to disturb your thinking, and more importantly no INTERNET surfing. Yes, this is the life of a researcher who intends to make a difference in her field.

I guess the point of this post is to apologise for going away for "such a small while". Being in the library has been keeping me busy, and I no longer want to be anywhere in my office where the Internet on the machines and the phones beckons. I am free. Free to solve those complex problems of science. I am REfocused, and thank God for His Wisdom. My students are waiting.

The Lord who has refused to let me be put to shame has now revived my enthusiasm and renewed my thirst for my work. The work He trained me to be the best at. As being the HEAD is the only place He created me to be.

Have a wonderful weekend. I know I am having yet the best days of my life.
