“Like sands through the hourglass, so are the Days of Our Lives” remember that opening from Days of Our Lives Soap Opera?
Sands of time is an expression relating the passage of time to the sand in an hourglass. Lately, it feels like time is going by faster as I get older. I just don’t know where my days go!
I don’t remember it being this way when I was younger. Back then I was very busy…..single mom of three, working full time and going to school full time plus a side job to keep myself busy when my children were with their dad.
Maybe it is partly to do with being more aware of my own mortality as I get older. Maybe it has to do with the shape of this once great nation and the very steep cliff it is speeding towards.
I think it has a lot to do with what scripture tells us about the signs of the times and the last days…..which we are definitely in.
I don’t have an overly busy life, it is the same ole thing everyday. During my typical day I go to work, come home, make dinner-clean up, spend time with Nadia and the dogs, watch a show, work on my blog, do some reading then bed. Do it all again tomorrow.
Then the next thing I know the work week is over and the weekend is here. This still means work since Saturday is the day I do the cleaning around the house. Plus I quite often work for some client or another. The only real down time is Sunday but we still have to leave the house for church. So, I guess there isn’t a day where I can stay home and be lazy
Then there are all the other things we have to take care of. You know, pay bills, laundry, grocery shop, errands in general.
I have been stressed & preoccupied about my daughter not feeling well and not having any kind of clue as to what is wrong. And I am definitely stressed that her doctor didn’t have a clue and we have to wait another six weeks to get into a neurologist….that is all quite irritating. However, I am leaving her in the Lord’s hands and I know he will take care of her.
I’m finding that having a blog and all that entails is a lot of work. Promoting, writing, coming up with new topics, getting to know fellow bloggers, research etc. I want a successful blog so that means even more work. This all takes time but so far I am enjoying it. My blog is less than two months old but I hope it will eventually be a success.
Now that I think about it, I guess I am a little busier than I first thought. Perhaps that is why it seems time is flying by
