Christmas Eve. Can you believe it? Didn't the new year begin, like, just 6 weeks ago?
Lots of people remark about how each year spins past us faster and quicker than the previous one. I so agree! And lately, that thought brings this verse to my mind:
"And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened." Matt. 24:22
And okay, okay... Jesus technically was talking about the Tribulation. But still, I wonder. I wonder if somehow He's shortening these Tribulation Eve Days for us. Maybe? I don't recall Time ever zooming by so noticeably before for all of us. Or many, many of us, anyway.
Maybe you think I'm stretching that thought a bit--and you're probably right. And yet? I still think something is up. Something has changed. Something is different and not as it was before. I can't shake that thought away.
Oh well, that's just an idea for you to mull over on this Christmas Eve. No matter what is going on, these are certainly exciting times in which to be alive, times which require that we become warriors, not whiners (so it would behoove me to stop oft whining in this blog!) :)
Merry Christmas to each of you, my treasured Readers.
