It’s only a matter of time.


Where did the year go?

I realized this morning that it is already May and people are booking things for the holidays. It is not that I am living life unaware…I just can’t get over how fast time flies (pardon the cliche).

I remember when things appeared to move so slowly. I thought some days would never come. Now birthdays seem to creep up on me and I wonder how it happened. I remember when my daughters were little and how it took “forever” just to feed them dinner. Now, I watch my grandchildren and think…oh my goodness, when did I get grandchildren?

This past Sunday, I was in church thinking about loved ones who are living in glory with Jesus. For them, I think everything must move at hyper-speed. We will one day be reunited and feel like we only recently said our goodbyes.

I also think that time moves quickly for a reason. When I was younger it felt like an eternity to hit milestones in life. It seemed to take forever for just about anything.

Now, I count my days. Each one reminds me that I am one step closer to Jesus.

Thank you Lord for teaching me to number my days. It reminds me to love you more and remember that you, and you alone, hold time in your hands.

Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. Psalm 90:12
