Time flies by abundantly faster and farther than the rooster, don’t you think? Wouldn’t you like it to creep along a little slower sometimes?
This past week I’ve been playing around with my new smart phone, and as I checked my blog, I was surprised to see that more than one week had passed since my last post. I couldn’t help but reflect on the old adage, where does the time go?
What events zoom by in life like a race car for you? Which ones drag so sorely along that you wait with immense impatience to pass? Recent events have occurred and will soon come to pass for the people that live in our home. My husband and I just celebrated our twentieth wedding anniversary this past week. That’s where I took the rooster photo, in a restaurant much too elegant for a mom like me who typically has the remnants of dirty fingers somewhere on my clothing. Honestly, where did twenty years go?
Pretty soon our wonderful exchange students will go back to their countries and families. Luckily, one of them is a returning student next year, so we will see him again.
My children are ever changing. Our oldest son is going to be a senior in high school! I have so many vivid memories of him little. I am shocked when I look at how much older he has become. My littlest one is getting bigger far too quickly. I could go on and on about how our life continuously evolves. Can’t you do the same?
Then…where DOES the time go? No matter how fast or how slow, or in what direction, there are some things to remember: in life there are always things to look forward to. I’m not worried about getting older. I embrace it and hope for more wisdom (even with every new wrinkle). I am thankful for wonderful memories. I can’t wait for happy new events to occur. I know each suffering God sends me is like a potter that molds me into a better person, with hope to become a more fragrant soul.
So, go give that clock a sweet kiss, and think of everything good. Transform those challenging or stressful events into a blossoming flower that strengthens the soul. Celebrate the fact that time goes by. TWEET TWEET!
