Have you ever experienced a moment which seems frozen in time?
You are going about your daily business when an unexpected thing happens.
An event which has the potential to literally change---everything.
As the unexpected intrusion occurs, in those brief seconds, your perception becomes narrowed.
It is as if time has literally ground to a halt during one gasped breath.
Everything becomes as crystal.
And then the world rights itself. Time is restored. Life moves ever onward. You proceed as if nothing happened. Because it didn't.
For which you are supremely grateful.
"...yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes." James 4:14 ESV
