Let’s face it, no matter how you slice it, time does not appear to be our friend.
When we are looking forward to something, it crawls.
When we are enjoying life, if flies by too fast.
Once gone, it never returns… leaving us with nothing but memories and nostalgia.
It dulls our senses and strips away our lives.
Our time on earth is the ultimate gift of creation.
Its passage shapes who we are.
It heals all wounds.
Most of us would choose our finite lives over having never lived at all.
This Advent, let us remember to number our days so as not to squander this finite, but all so precious gift from God.
