TIME IN THE SPIRIT WORLD
What time zone am I in? Halloween has just passed, and yesterday I saw my first Christmas decorations going up. Outside a grocery store, three young men were stringing lights around several small pine trees. Already? I thought, then a dab of panic set in as I wondered, Have I done all my shopping yet? I took a deep breath and smiled. No need to rush. And as I sat in my car and watched the high-schoolers making the market entrance festive, I remembered another reason why December was important to a young newlywed, how her wish came true and the lesson that spirit moves at its own speed.
