… time

It never stops.

The second hand keeps ticking, which forces the minute hand to move, which requires the hour hand to change. And, these little ticks eventually become hours, days, months, and years that have passed us by.

The amazing thing about time is that it never stops. The worst thing about time is that it never stops.
It’s its own little capsule of memories and emotions. Of growths and gains. Lessons. Accomplishments. Let downs. Disappointments.
It is seconds that become minutes that become hours and days, weeks, months, and years. Our lifetimes are a culmination of seconds spent doing something.

You’re either moving forward or moving backward. Gaining or losing. Progressing or Digressing. There is no in between. No breaks. No stops. No room for “taking a minute to get yourself together”.

Time is amazing. How is it that everything around you can change, but somethings stay the same… It’s amazing how you can grow and become. It’s amazing how time strengthens and tests. How it can pull apart cause distance. How it can mature and develop.

The greatest moments and experiences in life are those that stand the tests of time. The ones that take root and remain through out the changes and evolutions that occur in time. Those are the best. The most favorable. The necessary ones that give us a sense of security and a place in the world.
The solid friendships. Those important relationships. That one “thing” that’s been with us through the best of times and the worst.

When time changes everything and nothing.
I’m praying that time continues to change it all for the better and for the things that seemingly remain the same – I pray that they’re in the best possible circumstance.

…. here’s to the time. may never stop moving or inspiring growth, maturity, or development.
I’m grateful for what it changes and what it doesn’t.

What are you doing with your time?


… in time

This weekend was time well spent.

Time well spent with friends. Family. My hubs. A new random friend I met through another friend. Time well spent thinking. Praying. Worshipping. Just being.

My time was well spent in Nac for SFA’s Homecoming weekend…. laughing. Hanging out. Hugging. Talking. Eating. Drinking. Capturing moments. We had a great time in Nac and I absolutely enjoyed spending time with so many people I experienced so much with…. People I grew up with in a lot of ways. History. Memories. Nostalgia.

We went to the movies to see In Time which was absolutely amazing….. I mistook Amanda Seyfried for Dakota Fanning but other than that, the movie is thought provoking and challenging to say the least. I promised my brother I wouldn’t tell – not sure if he reads the blog but I will keep my promise. I will say that it is a MUST see…….
I like movies that make you think. The ones that challenge you and force you to face and deal with things we go to the movies to do – avoid and be entertained.
I challenged myself to take my time more seriously. To not waste my time. To spend my time helping and encouraging. Not procrastinating and delaying. To be productive in the lives that I encounter daily. To be productive in my life. In every area. Less sitting, more serving. Less surfing, more preparing. More productivity. Even while being still.

This weekend was a PERFECT, PERFECT weekend of time well spent. No regrets. No hurts. I was responsible. I had fun. I laughed. I played. I made memories. I spent my time and spent it well.

…. here’s to spending time on what matters most!
