WRINKLE IN TIME

Each day seems to etch a new line onto my face. With all the junk going on in the world it’s enough to make one look like a prune. I prefer to refer to my wrinkles as laugh lines, because that’s what most of them were caused by. I’ve always been good for a laugh. I love cotny jokes, I prefer comedy over drama and the sound of laughter is delightful to me.

There are days when we just have to laugh at our circumstances. Not every day is going to be perfect. We aren’t always going to be happy. All our dreams may never be accomplished. I suppose we could just pack it all up and throw in the towel. A lot of folks do just that. They give up!

God doesn’t want that from us. He wants us to be refined by our troubles – to be crafted into a fine masterpiece. Some of us will be polished and smoothed while others will be shriveled and beaten up, but the point is that He’s constantly working us – smoothing out the creases, straightening the path we walk, and making even the ruts and bumps along the way.

I expect that all my wrinkles will be gone when I get to heaven, but then no one would recognize me. I guess it doesn’t matter what I look like as long as I have an eternity to spend in a perfect place.

Life can beat us up or lift us up. It’s our choice. As for me, I’m happy to have the ability to laugh – even at myself. Think of the alternative.

Proverbs 17:22 A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. Great post Kathy !!

    Two pieces of scripture come to mind…

    John 15:11… β€œThese things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. (NKJV)

    I will explain for your readers… Jesus had just told His Disciples at The Last Supper…that He was going away to be with His Father in heaven… He told them there was a room in His Fathers mansion waiting for them when they die (John 14:1-4)… and then Jesus tells His Disciples that if His joy fills their heart, their joy will be full !!

    Walking in the Spirit (Galatians 5:16) with a heart bursting with the love and the joy of the Lord will keep a smile on our face, and the light of Christ to be seen by those around us…

    Also… 2 Corinthians 4:16… Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. (NKJV)

    Have a great day !!

    Blessings in Christ, bruce
