CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
I had two experiences this weekend that brought me face to face with my arch-nemesis, Time.
On Saturday, I picked up my 1993 Mustang 5.0 that I bought brand new at 16 that I hadn’t driven since 2001. After 19 years in a garage (including about two years of getting tuned up and detailed), she drove just the same as she did when I was 16 or when I last drove her in 2001. It was as if those 19 years that she sat in the garage hadn’t passed at all. With one turn of the ignition, I was 16 again. Take that, Time.
On Sunday, my oldest child went through his confirmation service at church. Just like that, 13 years were gone in the blink of an eye, and I was 43 again. You suck, Time.
As they say, Time is undefeated.
Here is my favorite advice for/description of parenthood: “The days are long, but the years are short.”
Fact: Time does not stop and goes by too fast.
Fact: You will have regrets, no matter how much you try to avoid them.
Here is one of my personal mottos: “If you’re happy with where you are, then you can’t complain about how you got there.”
If you are not happy with where you are, then make a change.
2 Peter 3:8 – But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
So, Time is not undefeated after all.
Prayers for Ribbed’s wife and people who are struggling with addiction, depression, and other problems, especially in these times
