Our Time

Every day is a journal page
Every man holds a quill and ink

There's plenty of room for writing in
All we do and believe and think
So will you compose a curse?
Or will today bring the blessings?
Fill the page with rhyming verse?
Or some random sketchings?

Teach us to count the days
Teach us to make the days count
Lead us in better ways
That somehow our souls forgot
Life means so much
Life means so much
Life means so much

Every day is a bank account
And time is our currency
So no one's rich, nobody's poor
We get 24 hours each
So how are you gonna spend ?
Will you invest, or squander?
Try to get ahead?
Or help someone who's under?

Teach us to count the days
Teach us to make the days count
Lead us in better ways
That somehow our souls forgot
Life means so much
Life means so much
Life means so much

Has anybody lived who knew the value of a life?
And don't you think giving is all
What proves the worth of yours and mine?

Teach us to count the days
Teach us to make the days count
Lead us in better ways
That somehow our souls forgot
Life means so much

Every day is a gift you've been given
Make the most of the time every minute you're living – Chris Rice

Yesterday I was reminded how fragile life is.  It took the wind out of me early on a Monday morning. 
Dave, may Heaven hold you close and comfort your family.  I will miss your wisdom.
Godspeed.

Oh love...it's too early to feel the joy of tears lol. I read your blog and it took me from whimsy after reading a blog at trash to treasures and then opened up your page to find your entry for today...thank you so much for this blog I LOVE IT! Bless you're precious, heart for loving your blogging readers the way you do, for caring enough about us to share this, to create, to inspire, to teach us, to send us reminders about His ultimate message of love and kindness and goodness. God help us all to remember to not take the days for granted and to love the people HE places on our path...people like YOU are gifts that HE sends into my life to bless me. Don't ever discard or throw away your God given gifts and talents because they come from GOD. Don't grow weary in well doing but when you are weary stop to REST, let HIM wash your feet from those who are uncaring, snippy and non-appreciative. Let HIM love you back to your creative God given soul. XOXO Bless you and thank you for todays entry...it's so special.
