Care of Creation 14: This Moment in Time

Today's Reflection is related to a clip posted on on youtube.  I think we are all moved by time lapse photography of nature.  It is simply amazing to see how the winds, waters, plants and animals change over time.  We know that time is a construct we use to order our days, our work, our lives.  But time lapse photography shows us that time is much more than that.  It is one of the great questions of life.  How can we change time, slow it, control it, move forward or backward...or even sideways in time?  

The following clip helps us to remember how awesome time is and how it inspires us.  Time keeps us from lollygagging around.  It keeps us from resting on our laurels or just sitting around and letting others take care of things.  It reminds us that we are limited beings...and if our life is to have any meaning at all it's up to us to get with it and make something of our lives.  Time is a gift we share.  All of us alive this moment share the gift of time.  Right here! Right now! We are one in this moment of time.
