I was looking at Facebook earlier this week and noticed that Annette's brother, Steven, and is wife, Dana, celebrated their 29th wedding anniversary. Both of them have a quick with, and I was humored by my brother-in-law's remark concerning his perspective of time. He noted, "It seems like it's been just a few minutes not 15,242,400." I guess "time flies when you're having fun"...I also read another perspective of time this week:
The Magic Bank Account
Imagine that you had won the prize in a contest. Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 into your private account, with rules that read:
"That Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height- to know the love of Christ which passes all knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3: 17 - 19
Another New Year has arrived, and already the first month of 2019 has passed! As one of God's children, this Elder has so much anticipation and expectancy for the next eleven months. We can't know, or even project, what unknown turns our lives will take.
What is our journey in life? How long is our journey?
What is the end of our journey? You really don't have to think about it. The answer is right in front of us.
