A Wrinkle In Time, Chapter 11


A Wrinkle In Time, Chapter 11

Today’s chapter and one more tomorrow will conclude this first book in Madeline L’Engles time travel series. I hope that those so inclined will seek out and read also the sequels: A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters, and An Acceptable Time.

I take that last book title for my launching pad today. I have used the line from the Book of Esther many times: “What think ye, that you were not born into the kingdom for such a time as this” to insist that this, no matter the circumstances, is indeed the best time to be alive. I believe we have no real choice, but to make the most of it.

It is a waste of time to whine, complain, or bemoan our station and circumstances for the planets have aligned perfectly just so we could have this moment in time. Our adventure in time and space will be talked about and read about by many for eons to come. Yesterday, I saw a movie, Sergeant Murphy, released in nineteen thirty nine starring a very young Ronald Reagan who went on to be the two term President of the United States in the 1980’s. For good or bad people in politics and out still talk about him today, but his fame and notoriety is no more than any soul who has dared to traverse this time space jungle, brave and heroic souls all.

Again I quote a line from my own daily mantra that I recite on my morning bike ride: “May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in my sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.” The change from “Thy sight” to “my sight” is intentional for only I can recognize and Carpe Diem (Seize the Day) this most acceptable time. May the words of my mouth, the meditations of my heart, and my corresponding actions be found acceptable in my sight first and then whoever else may think what they wish. “Happy is the one who does not condemn themselves in what they allow.”
