Soon it will be a New Year. Once again we will turn the page and find another beginning. Relentlessly, the pages turn and bring us to another day, a better way.
The wheels inside the clock, count off the seconds we have been given, though we never know how many. Have we squandered those precious seconds, let too many of them slip through our fingers? There is no answer to that question and when the end comes, it is always too soon.
Our choices make us who we are, the sum total of those seconds as they tick away until the last when we may meet our Creator, go on to another world or like a boomerang, be sent back to try again.
Do it better this time, be kinder and smarter, find the answer to the cosmic puzzle of who we are, where did we come from and where in the stratosphere are we going?
All the good books seek to teach and enlighten, shine brightly in the heavens and give us an insight we have yet to appreciate. I give you one of my favorite passages for its beauty and wisdom. If there is any truth in our universe it is indeed … that for all things under heaven … there is a time.
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
May this be your time,
