The Passage of Time


The seconds tick away as the hours turn into days, months then years.
Has all the time passed you by without the appreciation of the many moments you have be given?
Can more take place in a 5 minute encounter than living a 100 years?
You determine the affect things have on you.

You have been given the gift of your life and time.
You are never guaranteed another day.
There is something to always fill your time with:
Sleep, fun, work, exercise, hobbies, healing - the list goes on.

I remember the time I had a rather severe injury I was trying to heal from.
I had hurt my back and had a very difficult time moving or walking.
As I laid on the therapy table I was thinking, "Will this pain ever stop?"
Then I thought of course it will for I will not be living forever.

There would be an end to this physical self.
You may think what a strange thought but for me it was a thought.
That brought me comfort knowing there was an end.
This back problem was only a temporary thing.

My perception shifted in thinking of my healing in this way.
I also must say I am a person of Faith who believes in God, his grace, and His healing powers.
I feel He is the greatest physician there is.
Whatever the outcome may be I also know I am part of the process so I choose to spend the time praying, listening, learning, trusting.

Time waits for no one.
It’s always moving.
May I appreciate each second knowing what a gift I have been given.
A big amen.
