Blink. It’s a card game I play with my kids. Over the weekend, we had a Blink marathon. It’s a fast moving game, where you match up the numbers, colors, and shapes. I love that even the youngest kids can play. But the whole time we played, I kept singing the song “Blink” by Revive.
Then this morning, reading Psalm 90, the song jumped back in my head.
This summer is zooming fast. I usually start school in August so we get out earlier in May, but I’m dragging my heals at that thought. We haven’t had enough lazy pool days!
And as I plan for fall, I am trying to be so careful not to pack it full of so much good stuff that the days rush by! Already saying no to hundreds and yes to a few activities feels like too much.
There’s a line in the song, near the end, that always haunts me. “Slow Down… slow down.” It’s at about 2:32.
I suppose that even if we didn’t do any activities at all except living day to day, like summer, time would still keep moving at a quick pace.
A few verses earlier, the writer says that a thousand years for us are just like yesterday for Him… zip, they’re gone.
If life is going to keep traveling at this quickening pace, then I don’t want to waste it complaining or frustrated or angry. I want to be filled with joy because of His lovingkindness! Don’t you?
