the day will soon be over

The days are getting shorter. The evenings are becoming cooler. Summer is almost over. Fall will soon be here.

Sometimes I wish you could just grab the sun and hang on to it, and make it stay just a little bit longer.

Like on Thanksgiving Day, when we're playing our annual football game and ping-pong tournament. Or on Christmas Day, not wanting the celebration of Christ's Birth to come to an end. Or when our whole family is together for a reunion in a beautiful place. You just don't want it to end. But it must, and it soon will.

As summer ends, September begins, and the light of day begins to wane, I begin to remember that next year I will turn 40, and I realize the truth of the words "time stops for no man".

So since I can't hang on to the sun and hope to make it stay, I'll continue to hold on to the Son - my only hope and stay.

You are my sunshine,(next to Jesus) my only sunshine. You make me happy when skies are grey. You'll never know dear how much I love you...It also helps that you are the Human Sun in winter.
