So today is the final day of the Blogging A to Z challenge. I have thoroughly enjoyed participating in this challenge. When I see or hear the letter Z, only one word comes to mind. The word that comes to mind is “Zeal”.
Several years ago, we were participating in a Christmas Eve candlelight service at the church we were attending in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. The pastor provided various members of the congregation with different verses to read from the Bible. At the time, our second son was given a verse that contained the word Zeal. He was uncertain of what the word meant exactly. So I explained to him that zeal meant showing excitement or enthusiasm for something. Well he proceeded to read his verse with quite a lot of “Zeal”. From that night on, zeal or zealous became frequent members of our conversation. The following year, when the Christmas Eve service came around again, my son made sure he once again got the verse with “zeal” in it. And once again, he read it quite zealously.
Because, it has been about 4 years since he last read the verse, I am trying to remember the exact verses he read. I believe this should be the correct passage.
So what comes to mind for you when you see the letter “Z”? I would love to hear from you. And so this entry concludes my participation in the Blogging A to Z challenge for April 2015. I pray you have been blessed.
