The more we read, listen and learn, the more we are able to share with others. Here are some more quips and quotes from various sources:
When the student is ready, the teacher will appear. Zen Proverb
We are never presented with lessons until we are ready to learn them.
From life’s first cry to final breath, Jesus commands my destiny. From the hymn, “In Christ Alone”.
There will be an answer, let it be. The Beatles
A parable is an earthly story with a heavenly meaning.
Live your life with peace, poise and power. From Practical Spirituality
Grudges are a burden too heavy to carry. Our Daily Bread Magazine
I gave in and admitted that God was God. C.S.Lewis
The higher the hurdle the higher we jump. pab
Do the thing you fear and the death of fear is certain. Mark Twain
Look at situations from all angles and you will become more open. Dalai Lama
Time is an intriguing subject, don’t you think? It is always with us to do with as we will…fill it, spend it, waste it, look at it forwards and backwards, but capture it? Uh-uh. It is so fleeting that the second you try to live in the moment, the moment is gone. But live in it anyway…it is a great way of learning to become more aware.
Have you ever thought about how much time it takes to walk down memory lane? Or how long it took Perry Como to record the song, Till the End of Time in 1945?
And what about the songs written about clocks: My Grandfather’s Clock that ticked away it’s owner’s life from the day that he was born until the day that he died…ninety years. And The Syncopated Clock written by Leroy Anderson in 1945; a fun and lively piece of music.
Time is spoken about throughout the Bible, but the best time passage (pun intended) is Ecclesiastes 3:1-8. It is good reading to be sure and a wise use of words by King Solomon.
Time can be fleeting, or hang heavy on your hands, but it does not stand still…no matter what…time marches on.
