Recently a friend wrote to me. ‘We are often jolted into the reality of time passing quickly on our journey. Just yesterday our youngest son, Paul, remarked rhetorically, “How do you slow it down?” The prompting comes to make the most of each day.
Three of my friends celebrated their birthdays yesterday. Such a special day to celebrate life. Then came the sad news this morning that a fellow sister in Christ has died. A reminder to use the present as a gift.
In the light of this I share the following blessing with you.
May you experience time the old way
As a friend rather than the enemy
As a bringer of joy
Not a bringer of deadlines
May it loop around you and enfold you with possibilities
May it embrace you with love.
