What's An Extra Hour Worth To You??
As October ends we find a great gift waiting for us to take advantage of. Yes, today we move our clocks back one hour, essentially giving us a 25 hour day. What is an extra hour worth in your life? Just think if Nonna and Anna knew that they could have one more hour to talk and be with each other. What value would a mother see in having this time to tell her child how much she is loved and to pass on motherly advice that could be carried for a lifetime? To tell about past family members and what their lives were all about, what made them stand out and what made them special. To share maybe a few family secrets that need to be told or to just hold each other and be together.
Time is the most important element that makes up our life on Earth, and it is probably what most people least appreciate. What do you think an extra hour is worth to family when facing the loss of a loved one? What about more time to complete a task or to enjoy a special moment, would you consider that valuable? What about spending an entire hour praying or reading your Bible?
It is a fact that time stands still for no one, yet today we have actually gained a free hour to do with as we want. I want you to find something of worth to do with this time. Call an old friend that you have lost contact with and catch up on things, or call your parent and let them know what they mean to you. Spend this time to write a letter to someone dear to you, yes, using paper and pen, I can imagine that it may very well be a treasure for them to keep.
It is up to you to decide how you will utilize this remarkable gift that you have been given today, but I encourage you to make the most of it.
