What is time? We can’t see it. We can’t hold it in my hands. We can’t smell it or eat it. We can’t stop it, start it, speed it up, or slow it down. We have no power over time. None. Nothing we can do changes the relentless flow of the sands of time through the hourglass of our lives.
We can not call it back. There are no “do overs” of a year, month, week, day, or even moment of our lives. Once the time is gone, there is no calling it back. We have only one chance to use our time wisely.
The last several years have given me a new perspective on my life. Reality check: I have learned that for each of us, myself included, one day our time on earth will be gone. That is it. Done. I am not being morbid and negative here. Just stating facts.
In fact, I believe that once we accept the reality that our time here has a definite end, and each day we live brings us one day closer to THAT day, we will begin to truly live our lives to the fullest. Enjoying the wonderful moments that God gives us. Cherishing time with our family. Using opportunities to touch the lives of those around us. Preparing for THAT unavoidable day.
With this truth firmly planted in our hearts and minds, let’s live our lives with joy, and with purpose, making the most of the time we are given each day to experience and share with others God’s love and grace.
