Like it or Not, It Will Change   Leave a comment

No matter what it is, how bad the day is, if it’s a horrible week, it’s good to know one thing is true — your circumstances will change.

If you’re going through a bad time, and things are just downright unpleasant, it won’t last.

Things always change.

I have always hated that this is true about the good days and the golden hours when all seems right with the world.

I’ve heard someone comment that the reason we want things that are good to last forever is because we were made for eternity.  A desire for the eternality of all that is good is engraved in our nature; it’s inescapable.

You ever have a perfect day, you can’t help wishing at some level that it would last forever.

July 7, 2007, Greg and I were hiking in the mountains west of Boulder, Colorado.  My parents kept the kids for the day, and we went out and up into the mountains, all the way to Diamond Lake.

I have never been in such a gorgeous place.  There were multitudes of wildflowers, green grass, waterfalls.  The air was cool, the sun shone, and the lake reflected an incredible blue sky.

I did not want to leave, and felt like I was sucking in each glorious minute, as if somehow by thinking about it, I could stop time.

The heart stores those days in memory and hopes to see them again sometime.  A day that incredible just cannot be lost, we think.

Knowing that the creator of all of the good stuff has eternity in hand, makes it a bit easier when we lose the good days, and get stuck in a bad time.

Thank God that things do not stay frozen in time.

The bad times won’t last, but eternity will.
