“It is later than you think.” – Chinese Proverb
and don’t I know that?
Don’t we all feel it? The way the days slip through our fingers?
Moments are gone before they even start.
A mist of memories are all that linger.
I tighten my grasp, white knuckled.
My hands clench, desperately attempting to hold them.
I am acutely aware that precious minutes are moving over me.
I just want to stand still in the flow of time…
To etch the moments in my mind.
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven… Ecclesiastes 3:1 NIV
I’ve had time on my mind lately. Some days seem very long…but, the weeks go by quickly….before I know it, a decade has slipped by me. I don’t want to miss anything. I want to know that I was present, to enjoy my moments, to love, to laugh, and be aware that they do not last forever. To be fully aware, that is part of the joy.
