Time marches On


Time is relentless. And time stops for no man. God put it into motion and time does its job. I can remember my brothers and I in our one bedroom getting ready to go to sleep. My younger brother would sing a song as we fell asleep. I can see the new house we moved into when I was 12 years old. All the holidays we spent at our house. When I graduated from high school, I moved 2 blocks away from home to go college. Just close enough to go home for a meal and to wash clothes. I remember my first girlfriend in college. Then joining the military after college. Then my life changed when I met the Lord. I remember the first time I met my wife. Then holding my sons for the first time in our home. I remember when my 4 sons thought they were big enough to take me for fun. And I held them off until my wife jumped on my back. I remember when each of my sons went off to war. And the day they came back. As each son left home to make their way in the world. I remember when my grandson was born. The day my parents died. And the day my younger brother died. Time waits for no man. It is here to help us tell the season in our life. But there is a constant in this every changing world. That constant is God. He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. I miss my family that has gone on, but I know that I will see them again. Because God has promised and He isn’t a man that He should lie. So, time marches on.
