Life is short.
Does it ever grip you how short life really is? What do you do with the time that is given to you?
You Only Live Once
How cliché that expression is. And yet at the same time, how true. You DO only live once. How can I use my time wisely? Because I will never get it back. I'm a mommie, and a wife. I have one tiny life to guide, and one greater life to accompany. As each of these things, how can I be the best that I can be?
Does it ever sweep over you and terrify you to think that you only have just a little time to be here? Mother, wife. Even father, husband.
As I keep growing up, time keeps speeding up. How can I slow it down??
My son is already 7 months old. Wasn't it just yesterday that he was born? How did I miss the time passing? How is he already crawling? Standing? How does he suddenly weigh so much? Where did the time go? What did I do wrong that made me miss so much?
And yet, I realize I didn't miss it. I was there for all of it. He grew and changed right before my very eyes. I watched all of it. Except for those vitally important seconds where I blinked.
I think I must glue my eyes open, and never look away, so as to catch every single instant. Otherwise he will be all grown up before I have a chance to turn around.
I pray not to miss a single moment that the Lord gives to me!
