It will soon be a year since Suzy and I moved to Charlotte. The saying that “time flies” is my reality. If you spin time fast enough like a pin wheel, then time-past, time-present, and time-to-come blend into a single timelessness. We know time as something that passes as unrepeatable events in the course of which everything passes away. On rare occasions we have the opportunity to stand outside the passing of events and glimpse at their meaning. An event occurs in our lives through which we catch a glimpse at what our lives are all about and maybe even what life itself is all about. It might be a birth, a death, or some event of unusual beauty, pain or joy. In the glimpse we also see that what it’s all about is not about the present, but about the past and future as well.

In the eternity that is God (Isaiah 57:15), he/she give us also a glimpse at what God is all about. In Christ we catch a glimpse of what God is all about, and what ourselves are all about as well.
