Gotta get back in time?

Posted: February 20, 2019 in Postcards from Cancerland.


Back to the Future is one of my favorite film series.

GREAT SCOTT! It’s a fun story.
True story: Back to the Future Part II was the first movie that Diana and me saw together.
It has great characters, adventure, humor, and some amazing music by Huey Lewis!
There is also time travel!!!

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a time machine?
You could travel through history in your DeLorean.

You could erase regret and arrange your future.
I’ve been looking for the keys to the DeLorean lately.
Can I be honest?
There are times when I would love to travel back in time to when I didn’t hurt and I got to hold my granddaughter for hours.
I would also like to travel a year into the future and see how our current situation will work out.
Instead I live in the moment, I learn from the pain, and I trust like I never have in my life.
We met with the Surgeon for a follow up to the random crazy surgery.
Everything seems to be healing up the way it is supposed to.
I’m going to have another epic scar that might keep me from ever rocking a leopard print speedo again.
We are already talking about a colonoscopy reversal.
We have other stuff to work on first…hello belly bully.
But, once he is gone and my blood counts are up, we can lose the bonus butt.
That’s like traveling back in time to a simpler time…right?
Okay, not really.
Maybe it’s the Power of Love that keeps us from seeing the future?
“Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.” – 1 Corinthians 13:13
A time machine could short circuit faith, hope, and love faster than a bad flux capacitor.
If I travel into the future and have all the answers, I would be refusing to walk by faith.
If I go back and try to fix things, I’m manufacturing my own hope.
I need to trust a love that is powerful enough to take care of my past, present, and future.
“And with a little help from above
You feel the power of love.”
