Tempus Fugit!

Tempus Fugit!
I was looking around a small burned out house up the road and discovered a sundial with the words “Tempus Fugit.” Having had two years of Latin in high school I was able to quickly (?) translate this to mean “Time flies.” Since my father had permission to tear down the house, I took the top home and had it on display in my room for several years.

It was an important reminder that time does fly. The man who owned the house was an older gentleman who had a drinking problem and had seemed to waste away his life to the end. So the sundial was a reminder of how important it was to make wise life decisions, decisions that had long-term eternal significance.

Maybe that “Tempus Fugit” piece was part of God’s leading for us to go to Japan as missionaries. And as JoAnn and I continue to see time flying it leads us daily to helping others reach out to Japanese with the love of Christ. That’s what RJC is all about.

I pray that in the midst of tempus fugit you will today make wise decisions for Him.
