linking with Five Minute Friday at katemotaung.com – write for five minutes on a given prompt, which today is “time”
Often it seems that time moves so fast and there are so many things I’d love to do, if only I had more time.
The truth is, we all have time- lots of time. We just have to figure out how to use it. This year alone we have 525, 600 minutes (and no, I didn’t work that out- it’s a song from the musical “Rent” 🙂 )
The song poses an interesting question though: how do we measure a year? When we look back at the end of this year, what will have been those important moments? What will be significant and lasting?
“In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of coffee,
In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife?”
I’m sure this year will be full of those things but I think the song hits the nail on the head when it suggest the best way to measure a year- “How about love?”
I think that is what will be most important when we look back at the end of the year- growing to know God more and love him more, time with people we love, time to listen to others and serve others and show God’s love to them. Even just a few minutes of our time can make a massive difference to someone else.
I want to use my time well this year and have something worthwhile to look back on at the end of the year.
And, did you know, you can do Five Minute Friday for the whole year in just 260 minutes (unless you run a little bit over like I usually do)?
That’s got to be time well spent.
