If You Are Caught Up....

The river of time sweeps on,
but there,
like a tree planted in the water,
is our Lord Jesus Christ.
He became man, 
willing to plant Himself 
beside the river of time. 

If you feel yourself 
drifting down to the rapids, 
lay hold of the tree; 

If you are caught up
in the love of the world,
hold on to Christ. 

For you He entered into time, 
but He did not cease to be eternal.
                                 St. Augustine
