Time Lost.

Time wasted.

Time that is just gone and you can't get it back.....

Time- I got in the mail "The Houghton Academy News", the newsletter from the high school I attended and graduated from. Now, I have gotten these newsletters in the past, many times. I'm not sure what was different a few days ago- Maybe the theme of the newsletter- Thinking globally- It is a small world, after all...WOW- isn't that like my family?!- And like our lives. Maybe because it is my birthday tomorrow and "time" is just moving on so fast...What am I doing to Change My World??

With the Internet at my fingertips, I looked up Houghton- Great web site (anyone looking for a wonderful Bible believing high school- check it out ) and I had so much fun putting in my profile in my graduating class, adding pictures and my blog site. As I'm doing this, I wonder when someone from my class might be just looking at the site??? It was fun to catch up on the kids that I attended school with- the classes before and after my class.

Where am I going with the TIME LOST, just gone....

The high school I attended taught the Word of God, wonderful chapels, Christian teachers, Christian dorm parents etc. But I missed it- At that time in my life I played at being a christian, when the times suited me- I knew deep in my heart that I really didn't believe. I missed the boat in so many ways.

TIME- I found the Lord, The Lord found me- 12 years ago- I graduated from high school 38 years ago- --ALL THOSE LOST YEARS of time that I could have been praising, worshipping Jesus, my Saviour.

Now, I am not overly kicking myself- We can not undo the past- And sometimes we need things to be in our lives to be able to find Jesus in a real way.

I have TIME again now, as I am waiting for our precious new children to arrive. I am not wasting my time, this time. Now, I am worshipping, praising and working for the Lord as I am waiting. I am watching, to keep on catching the "waves" of the things that God wants me to be doing as we wait.

The Lord is so GOOD. He has not wasted any of the "times" that I have gone thru in the first 40 some years. He is using all of the things that have happened in my life to share with others on this path, this journey of life - to get us to the real life with Christ.

Blessings, Pam

Great testimony, Pam! Having been associated with a couple of Christian schools in the past I saw so many like you. Thanks to God He didn't give up on you!

It's hard for me to imagine you "faking" Christianity, because I have only known you as a fervent believer. Raising seven kids for Christ is the best use of your time that you could ever imagine. I can't wait to meet these "3toB's".gooteers
