Eternity

Lying in the surf late yesterday evening, as the waves crashed around me and sand all over me (and in my mouth!), I was reminded of the old evangelist’s illustration of eternity. He was asked how long does eternity last? Of course, this is a perplexing and frustrating concept in our time conscious world. But the old preacher answered it perfectly…”If a bird would capture one grain of sand in his beak, and then fly from the Atlantic side of the US and to the Pacific side and deposit it and then fly back for another single grain…as long it would take that one bird to empty the Atlantic side of sand one grain at a time”…then…he said…”that is the beginning of eternity!”Jack 2009
