So teach us to number our days,
that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
A new number continually appears on the atomic clock that hangs in our home and more of my hairs do not match the color,
of the ones when I was younger. I could continue naming happenings that we all experience as time ticks on; we are all experiencing it.
Nothing can slow this thing called Time.
I long to capture (don't let it go) the realization, that each moment of life is a gift. You know the feeling,
when you look at someone you love and the thoughts rush through your mind,
this is a precious moment, we may never do this again.
It is a gift every moment the new number appears.
Life is temporary for each one. When I allow my mind to think on these thoughts...I truly understand what is important.
When we are allowed to face our own immortality,
our priorites quickly take on a whole new meaning.
We will find purpose and meaning for each day when we consider our life as God's gift.
Every moment is precious, we need to cherish them all.
~I don't want to just live life ~
I want a life that is full of life in the One who gave life.

We need deliberately to call to mind the joys of our journey.
Perhaps we should try to write down the blessings of one day.
We might begin; we could never end; there are not pens or paper enough in all the world.
