The bad news is, six months from today is Christmas Eve.
The good news is, six months from today is Christmas Eve.
I guess it all depends on how you look at it. Remember when you were a kid and Christmas couldn’t come quickly enough?
For me, time seems to be spinning faster than it used to. Maybe that’s because the longer I live, the closer I get to the end of it.
Time is funny like that. We measure it and mark it. Divide it, spend it, and save it. But we can’t harness it, hold it, or slow it. And only novelists and Hollywood can make it go in reverse.
I’ve learned that regardless of my reaction to time – fear, hurry, or, enjoyment – I can’t change its course.
It’s a runaway horse with a mind of its own.
Thank God, I’m not in charge of the big animal. Oh, I can manage my own personal share of time. In fact, I’m required to do so. But I’ve learned that worrying about it has absolutely no positive effect upon it, yet myriad negative effects on me.
God seems to have it under control. I think I’ll leave it in His capable hands.
“With the Lord a day is like a thousand years,
and a thousand years are like a day.”
2 Peter 3:8-9
