Time Will Tell

Gregory Alan Isakov 2015

turning in the grain again
the bells begin to chime

time, she says,
“there’s no turning back,
keep your eyes on the tracks”
through the fields, somewhere there’s blue
oh, time will tell, she’ll see us through

howling out,
the windy hills
and all the time we took
you should know just how it steals
keep your hand on the wheel
and through it all, somewhere we knew
time will tell, she’ll see us through

and all fire and flames took all we trust
we’re kicking up dust
stations fade just like they do
oh, time will tell, we always knew

oh, time will tell, we always knew

For your consideration…..

Time is not infinite. It is finite. It is determined, always the same. It’s perimeters can not be changed. However, it is those perimeters that are infinite. The perimeters of time moves forward. It is the perimeters that can not be stopped.

Seem heavy? Think about it. A moment is always a moment. An hour is always an hour. A year is always a year. A decade is always a decade. They are always the exact same amount of time.

So when we talk about the “changes” of time, the “time when” or “rushing time etc.,” we are really talking about what we put into time. We are really talking about how we used the finite amount of time.

Why is this important to remember? We tend to make time our enemy, the bad guy, when we enter into a “busy” time. But time is always the same. It does not change on us. It is what we put into it that does. We have control. We have control on what we take on and what we don’t. We have the power…and we have the time.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take….

-Meditate/pray…ask…”What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of all?”

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Drink lots of water.

-Rethink time. It is your ally, your friend.

What made me smile yesterday….

-Hearing from my brother.

-Knowing I’ve done what I can do.

-Lots of shopping done for the holiday.

-Hearing from friends,  Carol and Martie.

-Bruce, always eavesdropping, tells Alex, “Mom heard from her friend, Carol. They are going to lunch. Have you ever met her?” Alex has known Carol her entire life. I could hear her laughing out loud over the phone as she replied, “Yes, Dad.”

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
