Time is so precious!

Bill Witcher will be sharing words of encouragement, inspiration and hope with you each Sunday.

Enjoy your time with them,
they are so precious
and they grow up so fast!

Mimi and I cherish the time we have with our three wonderful grandchildren. They are very special little people. They mean a lot to us and we value the time we spend with them.
As we grow older we have come to realize time is our most precious commodity.

Your priorities determine how you spend your time, and time is precious.
The following statements shared by John Maxwell may help put time in perspective:

To know the value of one year...ask the student who failed the final exam.

To know the value of one week...ask the editor of a weekly newsmagazine.

To know thevalue of one day...ask the wage earner who has six children.
To know the value of one hour...ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.

To know the value of one minute...ask the person who missed the plane.

To know the value of one second...ask the person who survived the accident.
To know the value of one millisecond...ask the Olympic silver medalist.

Your time is priceless. As Ralph Waldo Emerson advised, "Guard well your spare moments.They are like uncut diamonds. discard them and their value will never be known. Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life."
