Time That Is Never Wasted

What if

our

perspective

suddenly changed

and

those things that we thought were so important

suddenly

took

a

back seat,

and

your life

slowed

to

a

crawl.

There would be time.

Time to remember.

To reflect.

To pray.

Maybe for the first time in a long time,

or maybe just a little more fervently.

Precious, valuable, fleeting,

TIME.

Time with those we love is never wasted,

so why do we wait until we are forced

instead

of

grabbing

the

moments

when

they

come?

Well no I couldn’t think of one thing 
I would rather waste my time on than sitting here with you 
And at the risk of wearing out my welcome 
At the risk of self-discovery 
I’ll take every moment 
And every minute that you’ll give me 
And I wish all the people I love the most 
Could gather in one place 
And know each other and love each other well 
And I wish we could all go camping 
And lay beneath the stars 
And have nothing to do and stories to tell 
We’d sit around the campfire 
And we’d make each other laugh remembering when.

~~Sarah Groves~~

“There is an occasion for everything, and a time for every activity under heaven: a time to give birth and a time to die; a time to plant and a time to uproot; a time to kill and a time to heal; a time to tear down and a time to build; a time to weep and a time to laugh; a time to mourn and a time to dance…”  Ecclesiastes 3:1-4

    Thank you for sharing. What a sweet reminder that we all are given a certain amount of time and not to waste it. Sometimes our lives get so busy that we do forget what is most important. It’s time to start remembering!! Bless you sweet sister in Christ!
