Today Becomes Tomorrow
Today is both the present and a present. Today is the present Now –the Breathing In of God’s Spirit, and the Breathing Out of my life lived. It is a piece of time, the only place where I can change, where Becoming takes place. It is where my past is expressed, where my future is chosen, where my true self is brought to life.
All this then, makes today, also a present –a Gift. It is a gift of life from God, and a gift of my life to God …. ”Look Master, You gave me five talents and I made them into ten!”
Today is a piece of time, a length of thread, which I weave into the tapestry of my life. Just as I do not choose the Gifts given to me, I do not chose the color or texture of today’s thread, but every thought and action of mine, weaves it into the tapestry of my life. This tapestry is pure Gift –the Gift of Life to me, and the gift of my Life to God.The Hope I have in Christ, is that my tapestry, will itself become a thread, that combined with all the Saints, will become the very image of its Source, that the intertwined unity of all the love that is, will become one with God, individual still, yet consumed in the Oneness Of Love.
