A Box of Time


We are still here.My surprise

The world didn’t end.

So what do we do now?

Start over?


Wait for the next Mayan prediction?

Unless the truth is known, anything can seem possible. An end may have been a forfeiture of pain or agony.

A termination of this world could have been a relief for some. Or so they thought.

Somehow imagining no place to go from this place has the makings of a mental health catastrophe. If this is all there is, no wonder the world is depressed, forlorn and wounded.

There is no escape. No cure, zilch as far as anything to look forward to.apples

It is what it is. You make it what it is in limited time; and what is your amount of time?

Empty all your apples in as many baskets as you can find.

Fill your life; grab every opportunity; live it to the fullest. Fullest of what?

If you have the one shot here on earth you better make it good. Good for whom?

The thought of living in a “box of time” is about as unappealing as raw oysters. I hate oysters.

What if your particular “box of time” makes its own plans?

What if life as you know it all of a sudden, in a flash is changed forever?

Dream on.

I can’t remember ever a time in my life that “eternity” wasn’t available.

Sure, eternity at a distance but still eternity.

Knowing I have Eternity with God allows me to extend my thoughts and possibilities.

Rushing around to do everything, see everything or learn it all in a “box of time” isn’t on my radar. Purposely, I removed myself from the “rat-race.” It was either slow down, stop rushing or a pre-mature death was inevitable. Eternity will fill in where I leave off so why hurry?

It doesn’t have to be perfect.

It doesn’t have to be elite or special.

Jesus was born in a stable with hay and smelly animals.

His was simple; unpretentious and unassuming.

His claim to fame was a 4 legged donkey he rode in on as his grand entrance;

Hardly the picture of the Savior of the World or King of all.

He knew he had 33 years to do what he came to do on earth.

He also knew where he would be after the resurrection.

And he fulfilled his calling out of the purest love imaginable.mary

As many awaited finality; or an apocalyptic conclusion, what do they do now?

Maybe they will seek to find the one who will never give them an end.

The one who gives us life from one place to another with a new beginning.

It is called infinity. Eternity. Heaven.

He is Mary’s child.

  2. although i knew the truth, god is the only one who has the answers, i couldn’t help at times asking myself am i ready. when god sees me will i be lifted up into his arms. my answer was yes. the disappointment of not seeing him leaves me clinging with the hope of one day i will

  4. Hi Cathy, sorry now I can’t put a Like on your Blog either, they are blocking it but your message rates at least 3 🙂 🙂 🙂 or more, so very True what you shared.

    If people knew the signs (see below) they would not have believed that the world was coming to an end a few days ago, there is Prophesy that has not yet to been fulfilled but Jesus tells us we will be the generation that sees Him return because we are seeing the birth pangs but what you shared Cathy is very True, the race to do it all is fruitless, in Christ Jesus we will be equipped and empowered and motivated to do the good work God has prepared in advance for us to do and we will finish it regardless of the opposition and persecution.

    1 Thessalonians 5 :2 -6 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

    Many Blessings for you and your Loved ones dear friend, for Christmas and the New Year.

    Christmas Love from both of us – Anne.

  5. I can now add the Like Cathy, strange but I did find out something very interesting, I will check it out further.
