I can’t help but think how quickly things change. I realize that is a funny statement for a person my age, but still I am amazed at the speed at which time moves by.
I was completely oblivious to this when I was a child. Time seemed to move by so slowly. Summer seemed to last a whole year, Christmas for a decade. Now, years pass by faster than I can realize. I think part of that may have to do with the planning I now do that I didn’t even think of when I was a kid. It’s the end of September and I have a card on my desk showing events through the end of December. My brain is already there – thinking of who on my team will be on vacation in January and where we will be going on vacation next Summer.
Maybe I need to start thinking about now. Its so hard to look at now when my mind is wandering on into the future. But I think its detrimental to my ability to cultivate relationships when I can’t stay interested and focused on the now. God has been so good to my wife and I, and I’m learning more and more to trust Him for everything I do. No decision is too small or too big to put in His hands. I’m so grateful that He will care for me like he does the birds, and that I don’t have to worry about tomorrow.
