Back then I was in the 1st grade. Time wasn’t accurate, the world was safe, and I had no concern. I’d watch “Recess” and “Tarzan” on Disney Channel and went outside to shoot hoops, skate, or jump on the trampoline. It’s crazy to think that this is the same world.

I used to turn upside down and wonder what I’d look like when I was older. Now, we’re here. All the moments that I realized would pass, have. And they will continue to pass. I will look back at this in May and wonder where the time went. I’ll look back at this in 5 years and wonder where the time went. And again, I’ll look back in 50 years, wondering what happened.

Do you remember how when you were younger
The  summers all lasted forever?
Days  disappeared
Into months, into years
Hold that feeling forever

But you can’t focus on that stuff, it’s just an observation. I am constantly having thoughts of the past matched with new opportunity. I am not my body. Deep within I am the soul of Max Yelken and I am an eternal co-heir with Jesus Christ. Someday soon, the best I have experienced will be no comparison.

I pray I can dwell in your house with you God. I pray that I can bring some fellow pilgrims with me to share the view God.
