Past? Future? Present!

I just completed a Morning of Reflection on life and death. I thought I would not be thrilled about this idea. However, the thought that the PAST is over and should be relegated to the past and brought out only for the good things that have happened really got me to thinking.I have so many things to be thankful for and as I began to think about them I becamme more and more grateful. If something hard or unhappy popped into my mind I squashed it and went back to the happy.
Then the thought that the FUTURE has not happened yet and is totally open for me to make decisions to control it for myself really hit me hard. I thought of all the things in my life that were unended or that I wanted to finish or change or complete-you get the picture. And then I realized I had the power to make things happen or to change outcomes that would change the future. I need to live in the PRESENT!
I need to determine what I do. What will be my desired outcome? How do I get there? And I cannot forget God because he is part of what will happen.
Destiny is written in the heart and mind of God and all is present time for him. No escape!
I am here now. This is where I am. In this place, ready to listen , to ponder, to help others, to change what I need to change, and to keep going with those things I need to keep.
And this great Church Feastday of Pentecost will bring me the blessings of the Holy Spirit and the peace the Lord promised to those who followed him in the past and to me here and now in the present. A good time and place to be!
