Anybody know what time it is?
I remember the day I started thinking, really thinking, about time and its passing. It was a chilly autumn evening about 10 years ago. The kids were ready for bed and we were snuggled on the couch for a bedtime story. I still had dishes to do and was feeling a little rushed and frustrated at all the wiggling and the distractions. As I was reading (more like ploughing through) I noticed Jayden looking at my face instead of the illustrations in the Winnie the Pooh storybook. Eventually he climbed on my lap and took my face in his 6 year old hands, eyebrows furled, worried. Then came the....um....timely...words,
“Mommy, I don’t like that wrinkle on your face right there.
When you talk to God tonight maybe you can ask him to fix it.”
Bless him, he only noticed one wrinkle. We hugged and I explained that the wrinkle meant God in his Love had taken a long time to grow me up. l promised I would talk to God about it though. (for the record, I’m still having that conversation and God doesn’t seem to be eager to fix the problem). Jayden and his twin sister, Shaynah, are 16 now and sometimes that autumn evening feels like it was….. just last week.
There are two words that we say.........
