Time

I just returned from a trip to Australia. Did you know Australian Aborigines historically had no sense of time? In a fast paced American society so focused on time that is really hard to comprehend.  “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die…..”

We are all running out of time. Our clocks are ticking and our days are numbered on this earth. We don’t know how much time we have. Will our earthly clock stop today, tomorrow, in 10 years, in 30 years?

As I write this, I have two friends in their forties who are fighting cancer. I pray God will let them win the fight so we can enjoy more of their time. My Dad just found out at the Mayo Clinic that his time may be short. While his time may be short, who knows if mine may be even shorter?

Dad has had a blessed life, he accomplished much. Dad taught me a lot. One thing I am now learning; it’s not how many days we have, it’s what we do with the days.

Don’t count your minutes, make your minutes count.
