Today is my birthday. The big 3-9. Do you remember when you were a child and 40 seemed so old and 50 was positively ancient? Now I wonder how I got this old. Not that 39 or 40 or even 70 seems that old anymore especially when the day comes and you ARE 39. Why, I'm positively a baby according to some of the women in my church.
Time is odd. Einstein said it was all relative and explained it this way: "When you spend a minute with a beautiful woman it seems like seconds have passed, but place your finger on a burner for that same minute and it feels like and eternity." Right now, it feels like my life has passed by in mere days. My child became 4 overnight and the time that I spend with those I love can feel like seconds. My birthday wish is that God would slow down the important events in my life and let me savor them a little longer. In the grand scheme we have only seconds on this earth and I'd like to enjoy each one of them.
