Doesn't time seem to fly like a hummingbird? You keep wondering if it's ever going to land as it continues on seemingly tirelessly. But it is beautiful in its own way, isn't it?
Recently I've been working on my graduation application for next year. Yep, I'm going to be graduating with a B.S. in English in just one year and one month!!! How is that even possible? Time's just like that hummingbird--you see it one moment, lovely and awe-inspiring, and then it's gone in a flash.
And along with working on my graduation application, I've had to plan my schedule for next school year. Now, if you are in college or have yet to go through college, let me encourage you--get your required classes done early on, because it's exciting to have so many elective opportunities saved up for your senior year! I guess I'm lucky, too, because an English major comes with a lot of elective hours. ;)
In the fall I'm planning on taking:
- Civil War Era (History)
- History of Modern Africa
- Theology of Heaven
- Personality Theory (Psychology)
- Independent Art Study
But as I talked about in my teaching session for my "Teaching the Bible" class last Friday, we should make sure to take time to remember God's works from the past and let them encourage us to truly live now. Let's see if we can get this hummingbird to "land" for a short while and just be thankful for where we are and what God has done for us. It's something I know I certainly need to work on!
What about you? Is your "hummingbird of time" keeping you flitting from one task to another? What events are you looking forward to in the future? What events can you remember and be inspired by from the past?
Update: They canceled "Theology of Heaven," so now I think I'm taking "Women of Faith" class. Either one sounds good to me!
