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.
