Poem for Today ~

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate;
A time of war, and a time of peace.

Today’s Inspiration ~ The Way to Use Time

“The past is behind, learn from it. The future is ahead, prepare for it. The present is here, live it.”

~ Thomas S. Monson

Today’s Power Thought ~ Where are You Going?

How will we ever know where we’re going if we don’t take time to stop to think about where we’re going? We may think we’re moving fast, when, in reality, we’re running in circles. Set time aside to reflect, think, and wonder. You may discover new destinations.

Think About It

There are 24 hours in a day comprised of 1440 minutes and 86400 seconds. Each person on our planet has the exact same amount of time. Time doesn’t classify by wealth, place of birth, or religious belief. How we use our time writes the story of our life. Each 24 hours is a chapter. One page (an hour) doesn’t make a day, there are still 23 hours remaining. We often give the negative experience power well beyond the time of its existence. If we isolate a negative experience to the one hour of its existence we can tell ourselves, “I’ve still got time to make it a great day.” Yes we do. Take control of your time. 

A Better Life ~ The Gift of Time

When we help another we’re giving our time as a free gift. It is also a gift that we receive since it takes us out of our game and self-centeredness. We become more other centered through our offering to time. It’s a wonderful gift and often doesn’t cost more than the offer of time.

A Better Life – Learning is Part of our Human Nature

One of the joys of being human is that we can continue to learn and apply what we’ve learned to life. We can learn from our setbacks to set us up for success. We can learn by asking the right questions and seeking answers to those questions. We can learn by developing a curious nature. We can learn at all times, in all places, and in every circumstance.

Today’s Poem ~ Time Is

Time Is
Henry Van Dyke
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 not.

A Better Life ~ Don’t Let Time Slip Away

Don’t let time slip away. Tell those close to you, you love them. Call your parents tell them thank you for all they’ve done for you. Reconcile with a family member over past grievances. Before you know it, time will have slipped away. The chance to connect will no longer exist. You won’t regret it. Don’t let time slip away.
