Always a little sad when it actually arrives, since it ends the drastic increase of daylight each day, and tomorrow we begin to lose daylight.
Today is also Aboriginal Day in Canada, a day where we would be traveling to town and enjoying parades and extra events, usually in Boitanio Park. Happy Aboriginal Day to our CA friends!
Today what I was pondering was the passing of time. It made me think about HOW we spend our time. Eccelesiastes talks about time, and was frequently used at weddings and funerals. 3:1-8 was the foundation of a popular song in the 70's, sung by the Mamma's and the Papa's.
This morning I was reflecting on the passages of time. I want to utilize my time wisely and make the most of my days. I could just enjoy life and live for myself, and it would be fun for a season. But when the passing days began to shorten, and my life began to draw to a close in the last days of life, I might find I had little that was lasting.
This is a great season to ponder life and how we utilize the daylight. I want those days to last for eternity, and to have an impact for the good in this world and also in the next. It sure seems that the only way for that to happen is for me to be very connected to the ONE Who lives before, within, and beyond Time. As I am connected to God, and let Him guide my life, then what I do can extend beyond the short years of my life.
1 John talks a lot about walking in the Light. And, of course, the Light John is talking about is Jesus. If I walk with Him, living my days as He leads, commands, and directs, then I'm in the Light and the things I do will count for something that outlasts me.
What's the Inheritance you are leaving? As you enjoy the Summer Solstice, take a few moments to ponder the Light.
