Time maker

Time is measured by what is done

If I had Time in a bottle

As sand slides readily to the other side

mark the calender of each minute

make sure not to miss

what time offers to complete

lack of time , means of measure

boredom, forgetting what does matter

In a blink of an eye,

much to your surprise

life can and will

pass you by

What a monster time can be

if not used correctly

what is good, solid and secure

becomes more than one can easily endure

If our time is a precious commodity

then we shall move accordingly

make long leaps that are unencumbered

take the time to watch leaves fall and change their color

make sifting seaward peaceful voices

let God make all our choices

feel whats good and recieve freely

give that same to others gleefully

march for all that are honorable

save the others with our choices

make peace where not normally found

really make our precious time count

Hi Momma Mia

Time is so precious.

"Take the time to watch leaves fall and change their color." I love the imagery.

Many people feel that if they are not constantly busy that they are wasting time. I think taking the time to watch the leaves fall or stopping to smell the roses, helps us appreciate time even more.

Voted up and away!

Take Care :-)

Hi Sue

You are so correct... so many think being busy is better than slowing down and enjoying an appreciating the gifts from God we already have in front of us.

Thanks for reading and vote up and such! have a wonderful evening!
