Well, here we are at the end of another school year. Class awards, graduations for high school and kindergarten, field day and the end of the year picnic are all that is left. Where does the time go?
It is a fact of life that time stands still for no one. The years go by, our children grow at amazing speed, and years that at one time actually took 365 days to get through, now seem like they go twice as fast. So, what do we do to slow down time? Well, reality is we can’t, but maybe I can suggest a few things that might make the time we have more meaningful.
Take a walk, a bike ride, swimming, playing catch, whatever you can think of, these are the opportunities that we need to take, and the lifelong memories we can make.
The opportunities to send time and make memories will present themselves, we just have to purposefully make and take the time. Take pictures, videos, keep a journal, and make sure you save these things to the “cloud,” so there are always available wherever you may be. You don’t want to one day try to find picture or video and it not be in your phone.
SLOW DOWN, MAKE THE MOST OF EVERY OPPORTUNITY, AND SPEND TIME TOGETHER!
I prat that this summer you have plans to do those three things. Time is short and moves at the pace God has set, but life doesn’t’ have to pass us by. We are all given the same number of seconds, minutes and hours in a day. The difference is how we use the time given.
James 4:13-15 Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.”
