Jack Lewis Was Right

I remember reading a writing of C.S. Lewis where he engaged in great insights on the nature of Heaven. His prose was at his best as he presented his view of profound Biblical truths on the nature of the blessed state. But then, he added with uncompromising realism: “Meanwhile, the cross comes before the crown, and tomorrow is a Monday morning.” How true.

The force of that statements hits me particularly hard in days like today. I feel extremely sleepy to the point of exhaustion. I finished the book I was typesetting; and then, on Friday, I got an urgent translation to do. I was able to finish that one on Sunday evening. And, yesterday, my client returned the proofs of the typeset book, full of anotations and emendations. And this is just a small part of what I am doing.

I am swamped in work, with no end of it in sight. Please pray for a good rest during this week and the upcoming weekend.


  1. Eduardo, you’re certainly in my prayers. I can relate to your current feelings of exhaustion, as school and work demands, combined with volunteer work with JCFN (Japanese Christian Fellowship Network) are conspiring to suck the life right out of me.

    May God bless and encourage you, and may He provide you with His strength. Have a great week.

  2. Jared: thanks a lot! I appreciate it so much. You’re in my prayers too, and may God give you rest and strength for all your work.
