Time is a funny thing … sometimes it seems like you’re waiting for something FOREVER – like those last few days/weeks of a pregnancy … or waiting for THAT CALL that will potentially change your life. or not.
Sometimes – as they say “when you’re having fun” – the time just flies by and there aren’t enough minutes in a day. Like when you are on vacation or spending time with someone you enjoy being with.
In many ways, we are in a season of waiting and wondering … and trusting and praying. Surprisingly, I am very calm most days, but I often find myself just wishing to be able to GET ON WITH MY LIFE!! And yet, I am getting on with my life. I spent Tuesday afternoon serving ice cream to every child in our school, a year-end treat for their hard work for fund-raising. Today I went on a field trip with my daughter’s class and roller-skated! Tomorrow my son has a doctor appointment, and on Friday, I will work an hour in the school office. Meanwhile, there is plenty to do around my house and books I want to read and things I want to accomplish.
And so, time will go on … minute by minute … just as it always does. And in two weeks, I will think it flew by. At 12:18 a.m. right now, I am thinking the clock is stuck!!!
Time … it is a funny thing.
