From Where I Sit

It doesn’t take much to amaze me. I can be driving and suddenly notice that my birthday is being displayed digitally on the car clock. (This happens to me a lot.) Happy birthday, Karen! I say to myself. Twice a day all who are living are silently acknowledged, and all who have lived are remembered. Without time, time lines do not exist.

The word chronicle comes from chronos, the Greek word for “time”. According to Webster, a chronicle is an historical account of facts and events arranged in chronological order, as in a time line. A chronicle is not the same as a history, for it is seen from the perspective of the chronicler.

It’s all about perspective. And a blog provides a unique way of chronicling personal perspective. If humanity’s time line is marching toward the Second Coming of Christ (and it is), then from where I sit, we all have a part to sing, though our voices join the greater chorus.

  1. Hey Karen, it was so nice to have met you when you came to my sister’s church this past Sunday (Harvest Christian Center in Laramie, WY). I was very impressed by your presentation of Mrs McPherson. It is like God is getting to use the same powerful message time and time again. May God bless you and enrich your life as you serve Him. Much love in Christ, Christopher Soulé – Curitiba, PR Brazil
