Time

22nd May

It’s a curious thing. As I sit here now at work it feels like it’ll take forever for a whole bunch of files to copy from server A to server B and yet as I was stood at Sarah’s grave yesterday 5 years felt like it had gone by in 5 minutes.

It’s weird how certain events in life feel like they happened yesterday and yet at the same time have always been, almost like there wasn’t a time before. I’m greatful and thankful that the second half of that sentence doesn’t apply for my time with Sarah, that I know and remember well our time together.

On the other hand married life feels like it has always been. Even though I know things have changed in countless ways since Kita and I first got together at the same time it feels like our marriage has always been, long established before our wedding day.

It’s odd how it feels like yesterday that Ben and I were both pretty much living in my Uni dorm and yet now we’re both preparing for life away from Uni and that time of living together has passed. Uni life appears to have shot by in the blink of an eye and yet in that blink of an eye it has shaped me in more ways than I probably know. I certainly wouldn’t be where I am now (at work) without that time behind me!

I know a little of what you mean.

The thing with time is that it WILL rush past, as indeed it has done for us. Seize the moment, because if you don’t then it will have passed, and moments don’t come back.

If you have an opportunity to love, don’t miss it, an opportunity to help, don’t ignore it.

Especially, don’t waste more time than you must on stuff like work & parties when you can spend it with your wife and family. That time never comes back.

It was good to see you guys again. I don’t know whether this is real, but you 2 *seemed* better together, more at peace with each other and less at odds. And that’s definitely a good thing.

"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh." This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church.
