Daily Haiku - The Blessing of Time

daily encouragement written by paul

time is a river
thawing to flow in springtime
carrying boats away


My son (daughter): May you make good choices and be aware of the blessing of time. Time limits the scope of our awareness. We cannot functionally live out of the past; the past’s job is to inform the present. We cannot predict the future, no matter how close at hand; the future’s job is to inspire present action and keep us moving.
No matter the lies we tell of the past or the plans we lay toward future goals, our only control is in our present space. May your focus always be magnetically drawn back to the now, no matter your memories or dreams.
