I’ve never really been a big fan of changing the clocks. In the grander scheme of things it doesn’t really do anything except for changing the schedules. The arch of the sun doesn’t change. But they tell us that they have changed time. Now, I actually own and know how to operate a solar clock and I’ve recently acquired an hourglass. On my observation when aligned properly the solar clock does not yield to man’s laws and flow of sand through the hourglass is just as steady. Time as a natural force has not even noticed the decrees of world governments. Time as it exists in this world is set by the hand of God himself. In past articles I’ve referred to time as a river. We can only touch one little piece of it for a moment. Yes we can cup a little water in our mortal hands and we can even drink it down but we cannot truly hold it indefinitely. Our hands will dry and our bodies will process that which we’ve swallowed. We cannot own it. We can only use it for a while. We can dam up a river and say that we’ve conquered it but the river will only laugh as it fills the reservoir and escapes. It’s the same with time. We can only hold it for a limited moment and use it. We can use it for ourselves or we can use it for someone else but we cannot hold it back. Eventually time will escape our grasp and if we chase after that lost moment we’ll only miss the one coming behind it. One of the reasons why I chose a butterfly for tonight’s Feature Image is because their lives are generally temporary. Some live a few years and others only a few weeks. At the adult stage the Swallowtail butterflies only live about 2 weeks. In spite of all its beauty it’s grasp on mortal time is weak. Perhaps that’s why you don’t really see them resting for long. They don’t have time to waste in concern of things that they can’t control. So tonight I only have one simple thought to share. Do what you will with the clocks but don’t waste your precious time. All we really have is the moment in which we exist.
Thank you for spending this moment with me!
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.
We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.
I want you to join my group on MeWe: https://mewe.com/join/lloydslensphotographydiscussiongroup
