We had a great weekend in the Promised Land (Texas to the rest of ya’ll) and now I’m sitting in a Houston airport waiting to board my flight back to the mission field of Tennessee. Whilst eating a breakfast burrito from Pappasito’s, of course.
While I fly this morning…
Go read the beautiful poetry of my friend Ann. She has such a knack for putting into words what the rest of us feel and think…or wish we felt and thought. She writes:
So that’s my answer to time.
Time is a relentless river. It rages on, a respecter of no one. And this, this is the only way to slow time: When I fully enter time’s swift current, enter into the current moment with the weight of all my attention, I slow the torrent with the weight of me all here. I can slow the torrent by being all here. I only live the full life when I live fully in the moment.
And when I’m always looking for the next glimpse of glory, I slow and enter. And time slows. Weigh down this moment in time with attention full, and the whole of time’s river slows, slows, slows.
The bubble in my hand quavers, a rainbow at fringes.
