a few lines that have been floating through my head this week..
"...Time and place are fluid, and history runs into the present, and the present is always straining into the afterlife so that nothing is only what it seems." National Geographic
"The man who comes to a right belief about God is relieved of ten thousand temporal problems, for he sees at once that these have to do with matters which at the most cannot concern him for very long; but even if the multiple burdens of time may be lifted from him, the one mighty single burden of eternity begins to press down upon him with a weight more crushing than all the woes of the world piled one upon another." A.W. Tozer
