My inspiration for starting a blog is a young mother, friends with my daughter since they were little. I read her post today....the realization of time flying by. Her little girl turned 2.
Kind of funny....because the same realization has been flooding me lately. Preparing for my daughter's wedding day. Where has time gone?
Time is slipping into the future. The beauty of it is that the future is so much more beautiful than the past. Days of the past held such storms, black clouds looming and thunder crashing dreams. Ahead however, hope and faith. Clear skies and maybe even the promise of rainbows.
Time is a funny thing. It carries so many things with it. It ages us, but teaches wisdom. It storms through your childhood, but whispers memories to remind you. It holds a future, waiting for you to catch up. Once you arrive, you may find it was worth rushing for.
We will always have periods of time we want to linger in, mosey through with our eyes wide open. The upcoming wedding day is one of those...may that day move in slow motion. Soon, it will just be one of those memories that time whispers about. But for now, I will enjoy the seconds that lead up to it and dance through the rainbows of faith and hope on that day.
