Time for the Important Things I have a broken clock in my kitchen. It hasn't worked in quite some time. Still, I don't mind it being that way. After all, it is still right twice a day. I think that I keep it around because when I look at it I am reminded that my time will run out too some day. Seeing that clock just sitting there not moving helps me to keep in mind just how short life can be. It helps me realize that life it very precious and that I should always make time for the important things.

The truth is that most of us stay so busy that we often forget what we are really here for. We get so busy working and earning money to buy things that we forget that we are really here to love each other. We get so busy taking care of our cars and cleaning our houses that we forget that we are really here to enjoy and rejoice in our lives. We get so busy maintaining our bodies and supporting our lifestyles that we forget that we are really here to nourish our souls and share our joy.

Remember what you are really here for then. Make time for the really important things in life.

  • How many seconds does it take, after all, to give someone you love a hug?

  • How many moments does it take to say those three magical words, "I love you"?

  • How many ticks of a clock does it take to look around at all the blessings in your life and give a heartfelt "Thank You" to God?

  • How many brief instances does it take to walk through the woods, by the ocean, or in a garden and delight in the wonders of nature?

  • How many minutes does it take to push your child on a swing, pick a flower for a loved one, or pet your dog or cat?

  • How much time does it take to choose love and joy, welcome it into your heart, mind, and soul and then share it with everyone around you?

    Our lives are short, but God gives us all the time we need for the important things.
