Time waits for no man

“Time and Tide wait for no man”
Geoffrey Chaucer

When one’s small world is spinning out of control…
as pressure builds from the hot heavy tears sitting perched just behind straining eyes…
the screaming voices of
Russian hackers, love-in entertainers and national upheaval over an all things political…
pales greatly in comparison to the heaviness weighing upon one’s heart….

that which comes from the uncontrollable spinning of the circumstance of one’s life…

contrary to our egoistical presumptions,
cares not for our feeble planning…

Our only recourse…?

We wait….

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

William Shakespeare / Macbeth

For God alone, O my soul,
wait in silence, for my hope is from him.

Psalm 62:5

    God gives us those moments to think about what’s really important. I know this is a difficult time for you, Julie. I’ll continue to pray for you and your family.

    My prayer is for peace for your dad and, of course, for you and your family; however, I believe that it is important for you to know that your dad is at peace. I weep for you. God bless.

    • thanks Lynda—yesterday was bad, today seems better…ebbing and flowing…
      Dad and God are going to have to work on that peace business—as Dad has yet to ever let go of my brother’s suicide—holding to responsibility–while we’ve all known otherwise!!!
      a dog with a bone—and now God must wrangle that bone away….

  3. Praying for you and your family sweet Julie! 🙂 ❤
