Time is Eternity

Time is too slow for those who wait,

Time is too fast for those who fear,

Time is too long for those who mourn,

Time is too short for those who rejoice,

But for those who love, time is eternity.

Times of sorrow seem interminable. There is the need to remember and rejoice- a great part of this is remembering of childhood memories. The care of my family.

Care- I felt cared for and that care translated into love for me. That love translated into the center of my vocation. But the sorrow of loss does not easily turn to joy. The eternal name of love- that same love- Jesus yesterday, today, forever. That love cannot be taken away. There is a deep consolation in knowing that love for all eternity.

-St. Augustine
