Don’t spend time wishing your life away

Several years ago, I was driving the short distance from boys' basketball practice to the YMCA to home, my head spinning thinking what to fix for dinner before Boy Scouts. We were in hurry mode and quickly sped through the motions of dinner and arrived at Scouts on time. The roads were icy and snow is blowing and that, of course, makes for slow driving and extra "thinking" time. I reflected on how big my boys were and how, pardon the cliche, fast time is going. While waiting in the alley behind the Methodist church for Scouts to be released, the radio station K-LOVE began to play, "We Only Get One Time Around," a contemporary Christian song that expresses the thought that what we do in this lifetime is all we get in this lifetime. We only get one time around and we need to live in the present and love the people in our lives like there is no tomorrow! We all use the cliche about how time flies and how quickly time passes, yet do we really understand that this is not a dress rehearsal? I heard a statement years ago that embodies a great truth, "Life happens while we are making plans." There is truth in that sentence. Now, both boys are in college and it is as if life has been in "fast forward" mode. Some of you may remember VHS tapes and the ability to fast forward or rewind the tape. Life is not like that, however, and we only get one time around.
