Bro. Provencio’s Thoughts

February is such an odd month. First of all, it’s the only month that has a letter we don’t pronounce which makes it hard for some people to spell. And then there is only 28 days when all the other months have 30 or 31. It’s not just one day less than the others, but two or three. How did February get such a bad deal? If February were a person, it might just start crying and have a good pity party. Poor me! What did I ever do to deserve this? Why can’t I be like all the other months? Have you ever felt like you were February?

It reminds me of Luke 6:22, “...when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil...” Sometimes we feel like even though we’re doing our best to do what is right, we’re being done wrong by everyone around us. Yet the beginning of this verse says that we’re blessed. We see why in verse 23, “Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven.” We’re reminded that we’re not living for a reward here in this life but in the life that is to come.

Almost every four years, this little month of February does something very special. It has a leap year and in doing so sets the whole calendar right. If it wasn’t for February, everything else would stray far off course. We too can rise to meet any challenge that comes our way in this leap year and have a positive effect on the world around us. Let’s remember all year long to “Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy!”
