Holding onto time

Do you remember when all you wanted to do was grow up? When everything seemed brighter and better ahead of you and you were impatient to get there? I couldn’t comprehend the attitude of adults back then, who talked about time going faster and faster; about enjoying the present and not wishing away “now”. So now I’m one of those adults and I’m trying to savor each moment, especially as my children are growing up so quickly.  Our baby isn’t much of a baby anymore. It does make me a little sad.

Psalter 247 comes to my mind:

A thousand ages in Thy sight,

Are like an evening gone,

Short as the watch that ends the night,

Before the rising sun.

Time like an ever rolling stream,

Bears all its sons away,

They lie forgotten as a dream

Dies at the opening day.

O God our help in ages past,

Our hope for years to come,

Be  Thou our guard while troubles las,

And our eternal home.
