Studio Ergo Sum


"I study, therefore I am." My four courses require much time and thought. The days scurry out from under me while I'm just trying to get books read. Jonathan Edwards , my Massachusetts Puritan ancestor and human figurehead of the Great Awakening -who preached the fiery "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" -would wake up between 4 and 5 am and often be in his study 13 hours a day! If I had a fraction of his discipline, I could change the world!... or maybe just my ability to sit still. Pray that I will study long, tireless hours.
