Too Soon, Not Soon Enough

It seems that I am never satisfied. Things either happen too soon (snow in early October) or not soon enough (a Vikings championship). I can be selfish and extremely short-sighted in my thinking. I see things from my point of view and think about what I want, when I want it, and how I want it.

Very rarely, all too rarely, do I consider things from God’s point of view or think about too soon or not soon enough in terms of eternity. Again and again, I need to remember that God’s time is perfect. God’s time is never early and never late. When considering eternity, I need to remember that when applied to God, eternity does not mean a long, long time. It means God is outside of time altogether. I must remember that my job is not to keep a timecard on God’s actions, but to live in gratitude for all God’s gifts. God causes things to happen at exactly the right time,

Now, with all of that said, I would like to ask God to wait with the big snows until closer to Christmas and bring that Vikings Super Bowl sooner than later!

“Our humanity comes to its fullest bloom in giving. We become beautiful people when we give whatever we can give: a smile, a handshake, a kiss, an embrace, a word of love, a present, a part of our life...all of our life.”
