Timeless Value

It came as spam. A chain letter, cheezy fonts and all, with hundreds of emails exposed to me and everybody else. I scrolled down a little more and I recognized the message.

To realize the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who failed a grade.
To realize the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother who gave birth to a premature baby.
To realize the value of ONE WEEK, ask the editor of a weekly newspaper.
To realize the value of ONE HOUR, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.
To realize the value of ONE MINUTE, ask a person who missed the train.
To realize the value of ONE SECOND, ask a person who just avoided an accident.
To realize the value of ONE MILLISECOND, ask the person who won a silver medal in the Olympics.

It's another variation of an often circulated poem, yet worth taking to heart. I was inspired to create my own statement around the value of time:

"To realize the value of the Sabbath, ask yourself while you rest, re-energize and re-connect."

How do you realize the value of time?

Tick-Tock

Time is like air,
it's a background to everything.
It's always there,
and like things always there,
I can sometimes take it for granted,
or not use it wisely.

I yearn to spend my time like diamonds,
creating premium moments;
leveraging minutes for masterpieces,
upgrading conversations into communion,
allowing the brightest beams
of my nature to shine through,
as I live; a reflection of You.

"WHAT'S YOUR 'VALUE OF TIME' STATEMENT?"
