Chapter 4, Page 10, Book 17



To finish the moment, to find the journey's end in every step of the road, to live the greatest number of good hours, is wisdom. 

Ralph Waldo Emerson 


 April 10th - The journey to Easter

It is not enough to just say relationships are important; we must prove it by investing time in them. Words alone are worthless. My children, our love should not be just words and talk; it must be true love, which shows itself in action.  Relationships take time and effort, and the best way to spell love is T-I-M-E.

 Rick Warren

Not all hours are created equal.  The good hours in each day are what I call quality time.  Unfortunately quality time can be a rare commodity in many people’s lives. They don't mean for it to be this way, often, it just happens. They get so busy that there is either little time left, or what time they do have left is when they are exhausted.

Time is your most precious gift because you only have a set amount of it. You can make more money, but you can't make more time. When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you'll never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time.

A lack of quality time actually contributes to us feeling disconnected, from ourselves, and from those who are most important to us.  Our lives are so full and quality time is minimal. The awareness of others is a valuable holy week lesson for all of us.

Too often we become so consumed with how we spend our days that we lose track of how we are spending our lives.

So true time is something you can't get back. It is wise indeed to use it with good intention and to find those quality times.

Great reminder!
Sad, that due to circumstances we're often guilty of exerting energy to please the wrong people.

A wonderful gift indeed is your time being shared. "When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you'll never get back. Your time is your life."
