From New Year to Eternity

Standing at an airport gate, one witnesses the many emotions of “hellos” and “goodbyes”. Joyful smiles of greeting and happy embraces for arrivals; long kisses and tearful hugs for those departing. Life is hello. . .life is goodbye. It’s the
constant tension of letting go and casting on. King Solomon put it this way – “everything has its season. . .a time to plant and a time to pluck up. . .a time to embrace and a time to refrain.” As we turn the page to a new year, we have a choice – to greet it with hope and joy, letting go the past, or, to keep standing at the gate, hanging onto “if onlies”.
As Time begins to write in our new year’s blank book, let us look to embrace one word – opportunity. Let us seek it on days when clouds veil its appearance and on days when it arrives skipping in the sunshine. Let us greet it as God’s way of allowing us to discover all the possibilities it holds. Solomon adds, “God has made everything beautiful in its time.” Talk about possibilities!
Somehow, as Time records our earthly journal, we sense there is a place of timelessness, a place of only “hellos”, a place the wise King says God has put in our hearts – a place called eternity. Until then, we can appreciate all the prospects a “new year” has to offer.
