I only have one minute

by Dr. Benjamin E. Mays

I only have just a minute
Only sixty seconds in it.
Diddnt see it, didnt choose it
But its up to me to use it.
Give account if I abuse it.
Just a tiny little minute.
But eternity is in it.

August 12th - five more minutes

Time is free, but its priceless
You can’t own it, but you can use it.
You can’t keep it, but you can spend it.
Once you’ve lost it you can never get it back.

Harvey MacKay

As I rolled over in bed this morning I thought to my self, just 5 minutes more. and then I yawned, and went back to sleepand before I know it an hour had passed away, which got me to thinking about the value of time.

You will never find time for anything. If you want time, you must make it. 

Charles Buxton

When we realized the value of time it helps to prevent putting thing off. It is vital that we spend time to work.   Puttingthings off is a theft of time and success. Yet, everyone of us needs time to relax and enjoy quality time with our loved ones too. Life is very busy and if we fail to value time we will waste it on unnecessary things which may have major effects on the people that we love most.

Time is the most valuable coin in your life. You and you alone will determine how the coin will be spent. Be careful the you do not let other people spend it for you.

Carl Sandburg

Life is short, but it is also you’re forever. Every second of the day matters. Small things matter. Every thing, we do, even the little things make difference so how we spend our time matters. It’s important to stay focused on what truly matters or we’ll loose valuable time .

The great dividing line between success and failure can be expressed in five words: I did not have time.

Time is a precious commodity that we need to use wisely. I often spend a lot of time scrolling through Facebook and then thing how I've wasted that time, but maybe I really truly haven't. Just allowed myself a bit of rest then.

You know what always surprises me with time? That it is so changeable - in one second - your life can be turned upside down. We need to appreciate every single second. Sandie
