What is the most used word in the English language?  It is “time.”  St. Augustine said, “Everyone knows what time is until you asked them to define it.”  I think of time as the 4th dimension since it is what causes change to height, length and depth.  I love how time seems to stop when I am doing something creative.  I lose myself in thought only to find myself later on in a more real way.

Martin Luther the Reformer taught we should contemplate our physical death every day to keep things in perspective.  I like to think of the last day of my life as coming towards me instead of my thinking I am moving towards it, i.e. the future is moving towards the past.  This gives me a sense of calm to enjoy the here and now in a peaceful way, making the most of each day in a purposeful flow instead of an erratic busyness.  As John Wesley used to say, “Make haste, but never be in a hurry.”  My faith in an eternal, personal God allows me to experience eternity even while in a mortal frame.  To say I am blessed would be an understatement.

  1. Much like Martin Luther; I John your brother in all of this has made it official with scroll & tack the excessive list of iniquity within not only the Catholics but the Protestants as well. The Church of Christ is in a massive state of apostacy and I Yohanan have declared righteous war against Satan and all the religious powers of the earth. I have also paid temple freemasons several front door notices.

    The time is upon us. Shalom.
