Why I Am Grateful for Time

. at .

Time is a mixed blessing.

  • Time Flies and it is slow as molasses.
  • You can buy time and you can lose it.
  • There’s crunch time and all the time in the world.
  • You can have no time or time on your hands.
  • High time, time machine, lambing time and time warp are available.
  • Peak time, prisoners of time and peace time are all possibilities.
  • You can have a time-out and spare time.
  • You can be a small time criminal or your works can stand the test of time.
  • Your snatches of time can be smashing & splendid.
  • Or your time can be wasted.

“Whether it’s the best of times or the worst of times, it’s the only time we’ve got” (Art Buchwald).

 And even though contradictory, I am grateful for time. I am grateful because my time on earth is not a cosmic accident.  “Time began at creation and becomes the agency through which God continues to unveil his divine purpose for it” (W. A. Elwell). God has a plan for my time and has equipped me to spend it well.

How do you spend your time? Please share why you are grateful for time.

Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other “people spend it for you.” Carl Sandburg
