Time...Marching ever forward.

"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the Heavens..." ~ Ecc. 3:1



If we could save time....bottle it....make it slow down, make it speed up...make it freeze for a season,...wouldn't we?

Time marches on. It waits for no one.

“Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.” ~ Henry Van Dyke

Cherish the time you are given. It is a gift from God. Use it wisely. Fill it with Love. Consider it's limit. For now it is measured by the Hand of God. One day it will be diminished. Eternity shall surround us and no thought of it shall enter our souls. This I ponder today, as I look back over this year...keenly feel the passing of days in the present, and look ahead at what is not yet time arrived.

God bless you all. God bless your minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years.
Do not grieve what is past. Do not long for the future so much that in so doing you miss the present.

Hugs to all.

What a very timely post, Julie. It seems wherever I turn God is leaving the same message for me. Numbering our days...sharing Jesus and His love, especially with those who wouldn't step inside a church to hear the gospel...carefully considering what His will is and passionately doing it...learning new skills...SO so much to ponder and do.

Love that clock, by the way! Was that one of your finds?

This is so true. It seems as if time is
passing so quickly. I know we have the same
number of minutes in an hour but it just
doesn't seem so. The days come and go so
fast.

You are right Julie, time keeps going and going even when we aren't ready to move on. This year has been full of changes, so many things to be thankful for, finding you is one of them. God bless my friend.

Time does march on...and most of the time I just can't keep up.
