I think most of us think the same each year, so perhaps it's a bit repetitious--but it's always hard to believe how quickly a year seems to go by. I'm still getting used to the thought that it's really 2022 now. In these winter days, I haven't had as much to post about, but hope all of my readers are doing well!
I find it a thought of interest to consider one day in eternity there will be no more years as we know it now.
There will be no night there. Revelation 21:25
And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, And sware by Him that liveth for ever and ever, Who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:
ARE THERE NO YEARS IN HEAVEN?
-By Philip Phillips, 1868
Are there no years in Heaven?
No change of day and night?
No rolling seasons’ varied hues
To mark time’s onward flight?
No: Time itself must fade,
And New Years’ Days shall cease,
When all God’s children meet on high,
To hail the Prince of Peace.
His realm is endless rest,
And perfect holiness!
No cares shall cloud, no sorrow dim
That home of loveliness.
In His great name we raise
Our New Year’s song to Heaven;
To praise our Father’s boundless love,
And ask to be forgiven.
Savior, be Thou our trust,
Our daily, hourly friend;
Unite our hearts in love to Thee—
The love which knows no end.
So may our lives on earth
Made happy by Thy grace,
Be foretastes of a fairer home—
A heavenly dwelling place.
Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.
