Every time a New Year roles around it seems like time has flown and I can't quite believe another year is over . Does anyone else feel that way? When I look at my daughters it could-n't be clearer - it wasn't long ago that Hannah was a baby, right? Well actually, in 2013 she turns 10! As they say "time flies".
What is it about time that makes it fly by so quickly? There is the old saying that, "time flies when you're having fun". However, my experience is that it flies regardless of the level of fun being had!
I think perhaps some of the "speed" of time can come down to our hopes, dreams and ex-pectations. If we are striving for more; if we are desperate for the future NOW, we can find that it comes all too soon and perhaps not in the way that we might have hoped. If however we can stop ourselves from living in the future. If we can stop and smell the roses; if we can simply experience the present, then perhaps we wouldn't be so concerned or anxious about the future. I'm not saying that we shouldn't have a vision of the future (that's the great stuff that dreams are made of!). Instead, I'm saying that the future is moulded by what we do right now - it's safe to leave in God's hands. So right now I think I need: to spend some time re-aligning myself with God; to work on my relationship with Him, to allow him to "recreate" me as I go about some recreation. How about you?
