Where are the carefree hours on the front porch swing or evening strolls?

I need to turn from the obsession of time on my hands and focus on the assurance that time is in His hands. (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8) He has a perfect plan and purpose. Students study history by the use of time lines and noteworthy events. From conception, until my last fleeting breath, time propels me closer to Him and the heavenly home He has prepared. “To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, And a time to die (Ecclesiastes 3:1-2a NKJ).” As time ticks away, I find joy in a moment of solitude and guilt free daydreaming of times ahead….
