Half Past Now

     As we enter the new year, many of us are still running around dazed, confused, and anxious for the world to reveal its plans. We are constantly checking our watches, clocks, phones, etc in search of the time.
     So many of us forget to stop counting the moments so that we can  start making the moments count. Many of us have lost sight of our purpose. Every minute of every day is something to be cherished, not counted, like marbles in a jar. Smell the roses, read a book, plant a garden, visit a museum, write a book, start your business, finish a college course, hug your child, kiss your spouse, watch a movie, start a journal, read the bible, run a mile.
"I don't want to get to the end of my life and find that I have just lived the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well."  --Diane Ackerman The next time you feel the urge to check the time, tell yourself it is half past now! Half past time to bring glory to GOD by using the many talents and gifts that he has given you to use and enjoy.

Proverbs 21:5 The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty.
