Time: Soap Bubbles and Super Volcanos

Good Morning, God!

Yesterday my friend Ann surprised me by bringing a small jar of Miracle Bubbles on our Saturday morning walk. She couldn’t resist blowing bubbles and I couldn’t resist trying to capture the bubbles with my camera! I did indeed get one multiple-bubble photo.

I think of bubbles as fleeting — but a few lasted long enough to float up over 20 feet. Still the evanescent bubbles made me think of TIME. I think it was Madeliene L’Engle that described Humans as standing at the midpoint of Time Lines. Stars and Neutrinos and here we are God, in the middle. Or perhaps she was just thinking of Sequoias and Mayflies?

In any case, I’ve been thinking about TIME, God. Geologic Time to be precise. For several weeks now I have been mulling over the Super Volcano that lives under Yellowstone. Volcanos create mountains. Super Volcanos obliterate mountains. And the one under Yellowstone has been moving up and down a bit recently. Let’s see, it has been 630,000 years since it last exploded. So, God, is it due? And would I want to know if it were about to explode?

One Super Volcano was bad but then last night I was leafing though Science Illustrated and found an article showing six land based Super Volcanos — and probably more that are ocean based. Hmm. I’m actually smiling at the overload on my Chicken Little nature. So it might not be what’s coming down from the sky so much as what is going UP into the sky!

It makes me thankful, God, that our Species has been given as much time as we have had here on Earth. It makes me thankful for the Time I have been given! Let us Seize Each Day with JOY!
