Time in the Middle of the Month

We are truly into the 2nd half of the year, more than half of July is gone. I am in the 5th day of my self enforced break from active ministry. After returning from College with my books last Monday, I rested fully for 3 days before rousing yesterday to begin planning and praying for my future. I read an old post titled 9 months and 9 days and I did not realize that my term of service had taken 18 months and 9 days until 9th July 2016 when I returned from Korea where I presented two papers in an International meeting of the SBL. Time doubled in no time and I shall be writing my last chapter of my book "Ranau & Namaus". I have already reached 70,000 words but perhaps because of the significance of these past 18 months my book will reach 100,000 words.
Fingers crossed as I begin today and see whether I can get it done by the end of the month. And hopefully get it published before year's end. I need to get two Malay interlocutors to translate my book into the national language for the wider reading public. Yesterday a student asked me about end times and I have conducted 12 or 13 seminars on Revelation and it could be about time I write a serious but not too academic book on the subject of the end time.  Counting days brings us a heart of wisdom says the Psalmist and those who make use of every opportune time will bear much fruits for the glory of God the Father through Jesus Christ.
