What Time is it?

As another year has quickly come to an end; I thought I would share some thoughts on TIME.

Time is a mystery in so many ways. We have created a measurement for time because we needed it for some reason. I guess it makes things easier, better?          I am not sure. But then when I think about God time really has no meaning. It is just not necessary to measure anything in increments of time where God is concerned. So measuring time is only for us humans.

Maybe that is one of the wonderful things about death…Time no longer has any meaning.  Maybe that is where we get the popular saying…time flies when you are having fun…I do hope that I will be having fun in heaven whatever that may mean then.

Time…we never seem to have enough of it and yet sometimes time seems to drag on forever. Time…keeps us so confined to schedules. Can you imagine what life would be like with no way to measure Time. Everyone would be on their own schedule I guess. I think some scientist actually did research concerning the concept of Time. Surprisingly even if you do not know what the time is you somehow gravitate to a universal time schedule. Very curious, I think.

Time, time, time sometime I really do feel like the Mad Hatter in Alice and Wonderland…running around…late for a very important date.

It’s funny how when you are doing certain tasks time does seem “to fly” and other events seem to be moving in slow motion.

Time is so fascinating. Time cannot be seen as we can observe other things. Twitter sends your precious thoughts and ideas out to the world in “real time”. “Real Time”…what other kind of time is there? Does someone have synthetic time out there pretending to be the “real” thing?

The book of Ecclesiastes 3:1-12 tells us “There is an appointed time for everything, and a time for every affair under the heavens.

A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to uproot the plant. A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to tear down, and a time to build. A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance.  A time to scatter stones, and a time to gather them; a time to embrace, and a time to be far from embraces. A time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away. A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to be silent, and a time to speak.    A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. What advantage has the worker from his toil? I have considered the task which God has appointed for men to be busied about. He has made everything appropriate to its time, and has put the timeless into their hearts, without men’s ever discovering, from beginning to end, the work which God has done.  I recognized that there is nothing better than to be glad and to do well during life.”

In the business world there are numerous flashing sign posts about the benefits of “time management”. Admonitions to “use your time wisely” are lurking around every corporate corner.

~Here are a few quotes about time~

What may be done at any time will be done at no time.
Scottish Proverb

Time is the glue that bonds a broken heart, but love is the air which dries the glue. J. Franklin

There is time for everything.   Thomas Edison

Nothing is worth more than this day. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

They say that time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.  Andy Warhol

 

It’s time to turn the
“Etch-a-Sketch” of 2010 on its side and

 

 

begin 2011 with a clean slate.

You are in control of how you use your time; choose wisely.

What time is it? Time to wish you a Happy New Year!

Wishing you all that is good in 2011!
