Do you tend to focus more on the past, present, or future?
We're all stuck in the places in between, all of us are trapped in time. Time is one of the few things we all, universally, have in common.
How are we using the time we've been given? Are we spending it, or are we investing it? I've been thinking a lot about this lately, and my thoughts are not fully untangled. Maybe it's a longer journey that will take more time to unravel.
There's a time for every season. But what about the times we're not sure of the season we're in?
I still have a lot of processing and untangling to do with all this. So many thoughts tumble around in my brain and I'm not sure how long it will take to unravel.
Maybe it will always be a process.
Maybe, while we're in this world, we'll never fully know the answers.
Maybe that process unfolding is one of the little blessings of living within the restrictions of time.
We get to watch the story unfold in real time, then we can reflect on it later. We can make our plans and dream our dreams. But we still live in the present. Are we making the most of what we've been given?
I want my life to matter. I don't want to just count down the hours, days, months, years... until all of them are gone.
And, I think, for the time being, the only thing I can really be certain of is a need to reach for the Light.
Time passes. Memories fade. What do we do that remains?
