A Time for Everything

Today, we get to celebrate the birthday of our 3-year-old grandson Theo. Theo is a wonderful grandson, I love to hear him laugh, see him smile, and zoom around the house with his favorite toys. Usually, he is doing all three at the same time. I love that boy! In just three short years, he has already taught me some good things. Of all the things I have learned from Theo, my favorite lesson has to do with lunch and naps. Theo introduced me to the concept of first lunch and second lunch, and the fact that nothing should interfere with a nap. This reminds me of the importance of doing what’s healthy for us and taking things at our own pace. It also reminds me of what the Bible says in Ecclesiastes chapter 3:

Ecclesiastes 3:1 There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven … 11 God has made everything beautiful in its time.

There is a right time, an appropriate time, for all of the things we need to do. Your time frame might not look like mine or Theo’s…and that’s okay. God has indeed made everything beautiful in its time. This afternoon I get to spend some beautiful time with family and friends as we celebrate Theo’s third birthday. But first, I’m going to take a nap.
