Swiftly fly the years

“concerning the days that are past”

Deuteronomy 4:32

 

Well I feel like I just stepped out of a time machine….

We finished the floor in our bedroom this weekend, and have spent the last two days putting things back ~ furniture and clothes, yes, but there’s quite a bit of stuff we store in there, too.  It’s not a huge house, so we have to make good use of every space.  Closet shelves, the under-the-bed space, etc.  And we don’t want to just put things back where they were.  We are evaluating our belongings and getting rid of things that we no longer want or need.

So in the process, I’ve been going down memory lane.  Old cards and letters… some photos… a few articles of clothing that I never wear, but that hold fond memories for me… yearbooks… travel souvenirs…and a wide variety of keepsakes.  One of which was a heart-wrenching reminder of an old friend that I’ll tell you about in a few days.

And all this, on my 24th wedding anniversary.  Not to mention that I went to the same high school as the Apple of my Eye {yup!  Married my high school sweetheart!} so many of these old memories are not just my memories, they’re our memories.

At the same time, I kept getting email notifications from facebook of people wishing us a happy anniversary, after my sweetie posted that it was our special day.  I was hearing from people I’ve known for decades, and people that I’ve known just a few years.  Sort of a slow and pleasurable version of my life passing before my eyes.  But, you know, without the fear of possible imminent death.

So I’m thinking and thanking today.  Or thinkful and thankful…  Looking back on the past, appreciating the present, and anticipating the future.  God is good, all the time.  And all the time, He is good.
