I can’t believe that it’s already December. This year has gone by rather quickly, and I’ve noticed that the older I get, the faster time appears to pass.
Emma and I just finished re-watching the Harry Potter movies, and at the end there is a flash forward to a time when the main characters have children of their own. As I watched it, I immediately thought, wow, I too will have children soon.
Emma just entered the third trimester, and we are running down the home stretch now. As fast as this year has gone by, it is her pregnancy that has seemed to move the fastest. It feels surreal to think that I will be a father in only three short months.
I don’t suppose anything can adequately prepare you for such a life changing event, though I’ve certainly been reading enough parenting books to make a fair attempt. Life moves quickly and there are not a lot of times in which we take a break to savor the moment.
I don’t know what is happening in your life here on this cold December Tuesday, but maybe this could be a moment to simply take stock of your life, and savor the moment. 2016 will be gone before we know it, and time is always accelerating.
I pray that you find peace and joy in this moment, and that God brings you a joyful end to this year.
Have a wonderful week my friends,
