As a child Christmas doesn’t come soon enough, a nap is half a lifetime & a school year is an eternity. As an adult, time is measured differently. Christmas is always just around the corner, a nap is never long enough & a year is but a moment. I wonder if time actually speeds up or if I just measure it differently. Honestly, it seems like time is speeding up. The older I get the quicker time passes. I find myself looking middle age in the eye, & it is staring back with an ugly glare! My children are old enough to survive without me. They are stretching their wings & preparing to fly. I’m old enough to be a grandmother now. wow!
I pray that I will redeem the time…. use this precious gift of time that the Father has given me. For I find that I am careening towards eternity. Gaining speed. Rushing Home!
