As I locked the library door and turned off the lights, I felt a sense of accomplishment. Being the librarian on Tuesday and Thursday evenings has some epic perks. The feeling of success when someone has forgotten their password and are unable to log in on the library computer, LIBRARIAN TO THE RESCUE! Or, they can’t seem to make the copier machine work and you know all the tricks in fooling the copier machine into working, LIBRARIAN TO THE RESCUE! Where can they find a book on the end time events? – LIBRARIAN TO THE RESCUE! Alas, there are those cases when you are not able to help. And you feel USELESS! (That’s when I am tempted to call the “REAL” Librarian for HELP!) Feelings of USELESSNESS can run rampant in a person’s lifetime. And the need for help is inevitable.
Moral of the story: There is help for every situation! Have you called for help lately? – “From the depths of despair, O Lord, I call for your help” (Psalm 130:1).
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!
