In the early hours of this morning, I was reflecting on life and the speed with which it passes.
This process happens for me, especially when I face the chore of cleaning my cupboards, which often involves going through "way too many" old pictures.
I come from a family of picture takers. We took pictures of people and events...always.
I guess that is a good thing in some ways, since my memory sometimes eludes me.
I found this one from the winter of 1991.
Can it be this scene was 22 years ago? Can it be I now have grandchildren the age of my two youngest daughters pictured here? I know we all say it all too often, and we have heard our mothers and grandmothers repeat it frequently, but time just passes so quickly.
I look back and I see clearly the faithfulness of God in my life. I look forward and know without a doubt, His faithfulness will continue to lead me, one step at a time. It reminds me of an old hymn, I can still hear my grandma singing (with all her heart!), while standing in front of the ironing board.
"Great is Thy faithfulness.
Great is Thy faithfulness.
Morning by morning, new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand has provided.
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me." ~Thomas O. Chisholm
It gives my heart peace today, knowing that no matter how fast life seems to be passing by, God's faithfulness is always there to greet me each day.
Wishing you time to enjoy some special moments in this, a brand new day!
