As our children go back to school all across the United States, the phrase that we hear countless times:
“I can’t believe he/she is old enough to be…”
Yes, it’s true. Believe it. My children have grown up right in front of my eyes and I ask myself:
“Where has the time gone?”
But the Bible tells us that ‘Life is like a vapor’. For an example: Get a spray bottle or aerosol can and spray it one time. The vapor disperses immediately. That is what our lives are like! No time at all.
Hmm... Now you have an idea for a project with all of those old cans of Aqua-Net & Rave you just can't part with, don't you?
Don’t let time pass you by without slowing down to enjoy it. Life is busy. As we rush our children to football practice, dance class, basketball, then go to PTO meetings ourselves in addition to all the church activities, and grab a bite to eat in between, take time to breath. To watch your children grow. To fit Gods’ word in to them, so that your whole family can have a measure of peace without the chaos. The perfect mother does not exist. I for one, can never measure up to the example of Proverbs 31, but it’s O.K. to strive for that sense of rightness. God wants to go right along their with us. Don’t leave Him behind or out of the equation.
And don’t blink. For tomorrow, your school age child will be grown with a family of their own.
Whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.
