This has been on my mind all day. Only time will tell. Time tells so many things. Think about it. Time tells you of reality and also can give you a glimpse into the future. Time reminds you how long you have been waiting or how fast life slips by. Time can always represent decisions of the past. You may also think of "old times" and "good times" to tell you of the past.

Do I beg the Lord for more TIME each night as I recall time that has past. Do I categorize moments as a "waste" of time? Do use time to help me progress and soak up every moment of time?Do I steal time, just take it, to spend... quality time, with those I love dearest? Do I give time as service to the Lord? Do I have too much time or too little? Do I stare into the eyes of my children and wish I had more of something...oh yes! TIME!
Time is by your side. Or is it? Time is flyin by. Or is it not? All you need is time. Only time will tell. I need to change my perspective. I do this by studying the Word of God. Then I realize that it is
