Who said you can’t turn back time?  Whoever it was, they were wrong, because it happens today.  Although our atomic clocks are very accurate, it would seem no one bothered to tell the Earth, so it has been spinning along at its own pace, ignoring the fact that there must be exactly 24 man-defined hours in a day.  Since we can’t speed up the rotation of the Earth, scientists have reluctantly agreed to acquiesce to the Earth’s “deviant” behavior.  The atomic clocks will have to adjust. Today will officially be 24 hours and one second long.

For those of us in the Eastern time zone, we get our extra second at 7:59:59 PM tonight.  This will be great news for those who wish they had more time.  Personally, I’m not yet sure how I’m going to spend my extra second, but it will probably not be that different from all the rest.  Besides, I have a whole lifetime of seconds.  Why would I live this one any different?

Thanksgiving at Mom & Dad’s house always has great food and exciting (usually loud) conversation.  This Thanksgiving we got into an interesting conversation about creation and time.

The earth is millions of years old?
The earth is a few thousand years old?
Genesis is literal?
Genesis is allegorical?
Seven days or seven eons?
How long did it take to carve the Grand Canyon?
Where on the timeline do we find dinosaurs?
Do you see that light from the Andromeda Galaxy 2.5 million light years away?

I don’t know the answers.  But, maybe God is not the “I Was” or the “I Will Be.”  It is possible God is the ever present “I AM” because He is not limited by time.  Perhaps God did not just create the events ON a great timeline.   Maybe, He created the line itself.  Kinda brings new meaning to the phrase “God’s timing” doesn’t it?

And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’”
        -Exodus 3:14

Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”
    – John 8:58  NKJV
