Holly Ridge Happenings

You Can Keep Time
The little baby boy I once rocked is now 41 years old and a man bigger than me. Young, Vibrant, and energetic.
Adults from my childhood have now grown old, sickened and even passed away.
I can see now that, in truth, time can’t be kept. If flows on and on and carries us with it on a river of change.
The days zoom by and our hair grays our skin wrinkles and bodies wear out.
No amount of looking at our watches can slow it down. All we can do is embrace it and enjoy each day we are given. Earth isn’t meant for eternity, only Heaven is.
Do your best then to spend each precious moment here in joy.
Do your best to spend your days living and loving your family and friends and praying.
Do your best to spend your seconds here loving God!
Do your best to make the passage of time on Earth a passageway to Heaven!
Gosh!! With the rainy weather I suppose no one is traveling or having visitors.
Maybe next week will be more news. Okay?

Remember: He who postpones living rightly is like the rustic who waits for the river to run out before he crosses.
