I look at remains of the morning craving it deep more time to manage my life and complete Can my cramped life handle one more thing? can the eyes of our soul see life’s swing? No single advantage gained to hurry a thousand broken things missed to flurry Bulls in a china shop we break our lives missing precious moments as trivial thrives Worlds addicted speed mechanics skills maintain blur unholy moments and smear mercy drains They say time is money- that is not true this is what God intended for us to do: time to breathe deeply time to see what’s real time to laugh longer time to rest peacefully time to give Him the Glory time with Him in Eternity “We are merely moving shadows and all our busy rushing ends in nothing” – Psalm 39:6 ©September 2013—Kim van Breda

    You couldn't be more right. Time cannot be money, because you cannot take it with you when you're gone. Rushing to deeply true that is. Many need to be reminded of that. Excellent job!
