Remember when phrases like “I’m having the time of my life” meant you were having a really good time? Stuck inside, we can feel more like we’re doing time, instead of having the time of our lives.
But, in reality, we are experiencing both. How we view this time depends, in part, on how we value time, which is finite for all of us. We know it’s more than numbers on our watches. Our days are made of moments meant to add up to a meaningful life, “until death do us part.”
These are character revealing moments. And too many of us aren’t used to denying ourselves or delaying gratification. I speak from experience.
School’s out but learning need not cease. If we’re willing to be taught, we can be home-schooled and come out wiser when Covid-19 is history.
We can mumble and mark time. On the other hand, we can choose to make whatever time’s on our hands count for Good, ours as well as the good of others.
A long time ago Moses sang this prayer, “Teach us to make the most of our time, so that we may grow in wisdom.”(Psalm 90:12 NLT)
When this pandemic has run its course, I hope I’ll still be around,(you,too) wiser and not just older.
It’s time for bed. I sleep better and worry less, if I tuck myself in with a song, a prayer and an assessment of my blessings. In these days of learning to make-do or do without, I’m reminded my blessings aren’t things. They have faces, which just may be one way I’m already wiser than I was not all that long ago.
