Kate said TIME
Yes, I’m entering the room singing…
♫ If I could put TIME in a bottle, wishes would always come true… ♫ (Jim Croce 1973)
As you probably know, often the word prompt sparks a song in my mind and today it is Croce’s “Time In A Bottle.” I was 23 years old when that song was popular. I had two children, a 5-year old girl and a 3-year old boy. Life was pretty great back then. It was easy, simple. We had a nice little house in a new development, good neighbors, a big above-ground swimming pool in the backyard complete with a swing set and perfectly-manicured lawn.
Life was good and time was not even an issue.
But things change
Most of you know the “rest of the story;” however, I have no regrets. That time in my life was rich, happy, fun, and full of sheer contentment. The hardest thing for me back then? Saying good-bye to my police officer husband every day when he went to work. The reality of not seeing him again always flashed before my eyes.
We are living in some horrific times. A time when elections can be stolen. When babies lives are ended with a twist of a knife or neck and it’s called “okay.” A time when men and women are called they or them. A time when the expression AMEN is followed with AWOMEN. A time when a 7-year old can determine what they want to be – a boy or a girl. You know, non-binary. We have such a person in our family. SHE is 13-years old and has no idea of ‘what’ she is – dresses like a boy, binds her budding breasts and acts like a boy.
It is sheer heartbreak.
My final thought on this word? We, as human beings, are unable to make time – only God can do that. We must take the time He gives us and make it count. My word for 2021 is STEADFAST.
Steadfast, immoveable, always abiding in the work of the Lord…. 1 Corinthians 15.58
