On the Eleventh Day of CHRISTMAS..
As we look into 2012 we look at a block of time. We see 12 months, 52 weeks, 365 days, 8,760 hours, 525,600 minutes, 31,536,000 seconds. And all is a gift from God. We have done nothing to deserve it, earn it, or purchased it. Like the air we breathe, time comes to us as a part of life.
Day Eleven Eleven pipers piping
Oh, how they’re hurting my head.
They gave me such a headache
I had to go to bed.
Music should be soothing .
And listening pleasure.
Speaking of which, bed that is, one of my Christmas gifts were some sheets that were called Polar Fleece. Oh my, they are wonderful.
I don't know if you remember a song that was sung by some greats like Frank Sinatra, Jimmy Durante, and Tony Bennett...
As Time Goes By...
that was truly a pleasure to listen to which ever one of them happened to be singing it.
My gift to you today is a thought or two about time
The gift of time is not ours alone. It is given equally to each person. Rich and poor, educated and ignorant, strong and weak – every man, woman and child has the same twenty-four hours every day.
Another important thing about time is that you cannot stop it. There is no way to slow it down, turn it off, or adjust it. Time marches on.
And you cannot bring back time. Once it is gone, it is gone. Yesterday is lost forever. If yesterday is lost, tomorrow is uncertain. We may look ahead at a full year’s block of time, but we really have no guarantee that we will experience any of it.
Obviously, time is one of our most precious possessions. We can waste it. We can worry over it. We can spend it on ourselves or on others.
The new year is full of time. As the seconds tick away, will you be tossing time out the window, or will you make every minute count?
Time is a gift that we can treasure each and every moment.
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!
