Time

June 11, 2013

now clock

.

some things just take time

making bread

running

music

growing old

really listening

.

some things cannot belong in a snap your fingers,  press the button, one click app world

pressing  prayer

processing philosophy

making a lover

healing wounds

.

Quality Time comes in lots of unit packages

the once-a-week hour

the multi-decade once-a-year week

the fortnight fulltime fury

the big biennial all-day binge

.

And Time comes in several delicious flavours

the dawn walk with nature

the deep late night solitude

the  mid morning assorted people and beverage pause

the labouring hours that pass without measure

.

Time, cast in such pure ingots

is it the only currency that can measure love?

how long would you wait?

How much time would you give?

How treasured is each moment?

.

and how would an eternal God be known or loved except to enter time?

some say the great measure of God’s love was in submitting to death-

– death the terrible arbiter of time indeed

.

some say the great measure of God’s love was in seeing death

and raising it two lives

God’s and ours.

If death is unwound, that fearful clock –

then I say let the great measure of God’s love be in the gift of each

irreplaceble, priceless,

very present moment

of

now
