“Memories, Life, & Eternity”

14 Aug

Tonight is the last night of our vacation. The last 6 days have come and gone in a flash. So tonight as I’m sitting on our balcony with the Stars up above and the ocean below I can’t help but reflect on all the beautiful memories the last week has been filled with.  

With the exception of our honeymoon, this is the first real vacation my sweet husband and I have been on, just us. This week we have relaxed on the beach, stayed up way too late, eaten lots of delicious food, watched movies, hunted for crabs, and made some wonderful memories. 

Last night was extra special though. Around midnight we walked down to the beach to watch a meteor shower. It was a picture perfect scene: the ocean waves crashing, sand between our toes, the gentle breeze blowing, and the sky was filled with stars. The stars here don’t seem to be as bright as they are back home in our little town, but I guess the city lights can be to blame for that. 

So as we were sitting there, I began to relfect. We were surrounded by two of the most beautiful and vast creations; the night sky and the ocean. And as we stared at the Universe above, I couldn’t help but think how similar our lives are to a shooting star. Here for just a moment in the span of eternity and then it’s over. Time and eternity isn’t something that I think can really be grasped by our human intelliect. We have only one life to live and then eternity begins. It is vitally important that we live this life for God and for His glory, because the truth is, in the end that is all that really matters. 

As I get older, the more I realize what is most important in this life. It isn’t the job you have, the car you drive, or the amount of money you make. Life is about living for His glory. It is about the people you love and the time you spend making memories with them. Jobs change, money gets spent, and cars don’t last forever. But love does. 

So take some time to get away. Get away from the schedules and the busyness that everyday life brings. You just might come back with a new perspective and a fresh mind.
