“While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.” Genesis 8:22.
Our lives are filled with all types of routines.
Every morning I go through a whole series of things that I do in the same pattern. I think that this becomes more prevalent as we get older.
In fact, people who approach their 80’s and even earlier, have developed routines that haven’t changed in probably forty years.
We go through certain patterns every day. Carol wakes up later than I do. The coffee has been made already.
She comes out to the living room and turns off the oxygen machine. I pour her coffee and help make the bed so that she can watch television.
These are routines are not set in stone, but developed over time. They are daily practices that have happened now repeatedly.
We all have them — some good, and some perhaps bad. We do these things, not diverting from the norm.
Such are our lives — breakfast, lunch, and dinner, all established to eat at certain times. There are meetings, work schedules and times. There are doctor appointments and even meetings for Congress, (Imagine that!)
There is the beginning of a school term and the ending of it. There is spring time, summer, and fall. There is birth, childhood, adolescence, middle age, and old age.
There are the routines of getting up at a certain time in the morning. We make our coffee, brush our teeth, and wash our hair and face.
There is The News at 5. The sun comes up and then sets in the west. These are the cycles of life.
Everything has a beginning and an end, but some things are eternal and everlasting. Even time itself is a creature.
The world and universe exists without time. Man has to measure things. However, there are universal qualities that aren’t measurable.
Love and wisdom, faith and hope are not something that can be measured per say. They always have existed; they just are. These exist as attributes of eternity; they always have been, innate qualities, not in a place or even in a time.
Even time and space is something created; beyond time and space.
But for now we have patterns and appointments, and schedules, and clocks, to measure what we do in this life of ours.
We need them to set in motion what we do every day. This is our life on this planet that we now call home.
