December 5th - take advantage of the season

Life is short and we have never too much time for gladdening the hearts of those who are traveling the dark journey with us.  Oh be swift to love, make haste to be kind.

Henry Frederic Amiel

Don’t miss a chance this season to take advantage of every day as it comes.  Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day when we take the time to look for it. 

Life is short, there is no replay or rewind so enjoy every moment s it comes.  Opportunities don’t last forever, but the good news is you can take steps to make sure you don’t miss out on something because you limit your options.

Opportunities and risks often go together.  A good attitude will help you succeed when taking a risk.  And it’s important to stay focused

If you had a bank that credited your account each morning with $86,400;and your bank carried over no balance from day to day, but allowed you tp keep whatever cash you could spend, and each evening cancelled out what ever amount you had failed to use during the day, what would you do?  Naturally you'd draw out every dollar.   Actually we do have such a bank and it’s name is time.  Every morning credits your account with 86,400 seconds.  Every night it rules as lost whatever you have failed to invest.

The bank of time carries over no balance from one day to the next and allows no over drafts.  If you fail to use days deposit, the loss is yours.  There is no going back, no drawing against tomorrow.  It is any any wonder Time is is the most valuable thing a man can spend.

Want to keep Christ in Christms?  Feed the hungry, clothes the naked, forgive the guilty, welcome the unwanted , care for thei ill, love your enemies, and do unto others as you would have done unto you you.

I like that last quote about keeping Christ in Christmas. Its something we all should consider doing! So true about time. We need to use it wisely.



" Every day may not be good..." We have to make good use of the time we have and make everyday count.

That '86,400' analogy is so powerful. Like Jack, I love the pix of your son and his boy!

I am going to steal/borrow part of your story about the 84K seconds!

And you are right again - Christmas is the GIVING not the GETTING!

I see now that time is more valuable than money.
