Life Comes at you Fast

Not too long ago there was a commercial where some parents strapped their child into a car seat--and when they turned around, the child had turned into an adult.

There was another one where a dad was talking to a little girl sitting behind the wheel of a car. He was lecturing her about driving carefully--"don't take the interstate, don't talk on the phone," etc. When he finally handed over the keys, the little girl had turned into a 16-year-old.

For those of us who have children, it's all too true. Life comes at you fast.

Sunday I shared how all the kids starting school last week reminded me of my son's first day of kindergarten. David burst into our bedroom and woke Lorie and me up. He was all dressed up in his new school clothes and his new shoes. He had a brand new (empty) backpack on his back. And he was shouting, "School! School! Today I get to go to school!"

It was six in the morning. And his bus didn't even come 'til nine.

That seems like only yesterday.

This week David went back to school again. Only, this time he went back as an English teacher at Northern High School in Durham, NC.

Life comes at you fast.

And that's one reason we're doing the "One Month to Live" series. To help you and me make the most of every moment while we've got it.

  1. Congratulations to your son!! Children are so special, and extra time doesn't usually come along until they are grown!
