Time and Letting Go
Image from http://christainnewyork.com

REFLECTION: Time is just a number and only a concept of giving it a conscious thought. Time will always stand still but we can always choose to come to life or tick away.

I replied >> Time doesn’t go back. It always moves forward. Once gone, it never returns so we need to use it wisely. I aim to manage it well by living well with the things and people I love – not only for my good but for theirs too.

And I hold them loosely: time, people, and things. And I learn to let go — though it’s often painful. I let go and let God, the Great Timekeeper, to have His way in my life because He knows best…every single time.

  1. Idle time – seeking fun
    seeking fun – getting off track,
    getting off track – hurting those in the way
    Hurting those in the way – sorry
    Sorry – letting go.
    letting go …freeing to the soul…

  2. Hi – have reblogged this – hope you don’t mind?
    Always interested in time and perceptions of it.
    Cluttering up your comments here with something quoted from two speeches from a character in one of my books:
    ‘Time is elastic. We have body clocks inside us, but they shift. They’re unreliable. You know the hour in the morning before work when you’re late and you’re trying to fit everything in, that hour is short? Yet, in the middle of the day, when you’ve an important date … and you’re stuck at work or somewhere else you’d rather not be, that hour is incredibly long. Our body clock gets screwed up and stretches it.’
    ‘A clock is a constant. Each one is different, each has his own idea of time, but he’s unbending, unremitting. He doesn’t care if you’re preparing for work or a lover. His labour is continuous and like a faithful servant, he plods his way through the day, blinkered, tunnel vision-ed.’
