You know, time has a way of moving quickly and
catching you unaware of the passing years.
It seems just yesterday that I was a young girl,
just married and embarking on my new life with my
And yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I
wonder where all the years went. I know that I lived
them all... And I have glimpses of how it was back
then and of all my hopes and dreams...
But, here it is...the winter of my life and it
catches me by surprise...How did I get here so fast?
Where did the years go and where did my babies go?
And where did my youth go?
I remember well...seeing older people through the
years and thinking that those older people were
years away from me and that winter was so far off
that I could not fathom it or imagine fully what it
would be like...
But, here it is...husband retired yesterday and he's
really getting gray...he moves slower and I see an
older man now. He's in much better shape than
me...but, I see the great change...
Not the one I married who was dark and young and
strong... but, like me, his age is beginning to show
and we are now those older folks that we used to see
and never thought we'd be.
Each day now, I find that just getting a shower is a
real target for the day! And taking a nap is not a
treat anymore...it's mandatory! Cause if I don't on
my own free will...I just fall asleep where I sit!
And so, now I enter into this new season of my life
unprepared for all the aches and pains and the loss
of strength and ability to go and do things.
But, at least I know, that though the winter has
come, and I'm not sure how long it will last...This
I know, that when it's over...I will enjoy the
Spring in the arms of my loving Father...and wait
for my loved ones to come when their winter is over
So, if you're not in your winter yet...let me remind
you, that it will be here faster than you think. So,
whatever you would like to accomplish in your life
please do it quickly!
For remember that scripture?...our life is but a
vapor, it vanishes away...So, do what you can today,
because you can never be sure whether this is your
winter or not!
You have no promise that you will see all the
seasons of your life... so, live for the Lord today
and say all the things that you want your loved ones
