Traveling across the sky
Time is fleeting. It passes by so quickly.
Into deep summer, the year is half over, and only five-and-half months to be lived. Never knew that life was like a 100 metre dash.
When still a kid, Christmas, birthday and the winter holidays were the only time worth waiting for. Life then was like a marathon. Christmas never came. Birthdays were too slow to come. And the holidays were too few and far in between. Oh, the agony of that excited wait… If life can be lived as a kid forever, how much simpler, peaceful and friendly the world would be!
When you grow up, time usually catches you unaware. It was dry last week. You get older by a week, and it is raining cats and dogs. Not a happy situation for a person who has works outside to earn money. I was tempted to grumble until I read this:
Rain clouds filled with lightning
appear at God’s command,
traveling across the sky
to release their cargo –
sometimes as punishment for sin,
sometimes as kindness.
Contemporary English Version
Do I still complain about the weather? God knows best what He’s doing!
