So, the CCBS student who works in the Library on Monday evenings was missing last night!
I am the humble, meek, and mild librarian for Tuesday and Thursday nights, but on Monday nights, I have a death-defying class – Genesis! Yet, I strolled into the library last night on a quest to share a bit of information with the librarian on duty and low and behold she was nowhere to be found!! I questioned a fellow student and then proceeded to question another and then another, while all the time there sat in the library behind a computer at a workstation – a student! What did he know about the librarian’s disappearance??? Was he somehow involved? I questioned him over and over – trying to see if his story stayed the same. He seemed to be uneasy, but maybe that was just the pepperoni pizza he had been eating not agreeing with him. Found out 24 hours later she simply forgot it was her night to be in the Library.
The moral of the story: Don’t jump to conclusions (1 Samuel 1:13)!! #toomanyhallmarkmysteries
In 2014, I finally earned my associate degree in Bible after a 30-year absence from college life. During this auspicious interval of my life, I had the privilege of helping in the college library. And it was there, at Carolina College of Biblical Studies in Fayetteville, North Carolina, that I was motivated to write, and did in fact write my “Episodes in the Library!”
In celebration of five years blogging through the avenue of WordPress, I will be posting an Episode each day (there are a total of eleven). They are short and raw but nonetheless, I enjoyed the time in the library as well as the “Colorful Gems” that came to me!
