Sunrise brings light to darkness as this security camera caught on tape, in 33 seconds – the time it takes to inhale deeply, to smile – to blink.

 

 

 

According to Answer.com, the average person blinks 6.2 million times in a year.  As 2017 closes…in a few short hours, we will celebrate the joys, recognize the sadness, and hopefully, remember what it taught us.  It seems we were here at this time and place – only a blink ago – welcoming in 2017.

But what is a blink? Perhaps it is this very moment.

Now blink.  What were you doing? Thinking of what will be? Was it with regret or with hope?

It only takes a blink …

… to be born.

… to die.

…to be grateful.

…to feel sorrow.

…to forgive and to be forgiven.

… to experience peace.

… to be in the moment and to know that moment.

What will you do with your 6.2 million blinks in 2018?

“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.”
