White Wednesday,The Gift of Time

24 hours in a day

7 days in a week

52 weeks in a year

we are all given the same amount



my desire is to see my time well spent




an hour with a friend

a tradition with a sister

a morning with a mother


an afternoon with a daughter

an evening with my beloved





hours become days

days turn into weeks



weeks become months

and months flow into a year



My prayer is for joy,

for peace,

for love,

for commitment,

for favor.




Thank you God, for one more year.



A year spent well and wisely with You.




May God's blessing for the New Year
fall gently like snow.

Debra

Oh Debra-
I am not surprised this is so beautifully written and expressed.
I want to jump on your coat tail and say, "Me too!"

Have a great day, dear friend.

Debra,

Thank you for this wonderful post. Time is a precious gift. I'm learning that more and more with each passing year. I love your "time tree". What a wonderful project! I may have to make one myself. Just as a reminder of how beautiful and precious time really is.

Happy New Year to you and yours,
Jen

Oh my goodness - your photos are gorgeous!!! I love the time pieces!!!

I can't believe this year is gone... what a year! Part of me is like "oh no! i didn't get everything done!" and the other part of me is like "bring it on - i'm ready!!!"

anywho - Happy New Year!!!

What wonderful words. Your tree is very pretty. I tried to do a all white Christmas arrangement. I guess I just do color best.

Deborah Ann said...

Something beautiful happens when you take breathtaking photos and add words to them. It's a book-magic thing! Truly Holy Spirit breathed.

Happy New Year, Debra!

Dearest Debra,
What a blessing to run into you! I am always amazed at how many Christians find me and vice versa. Thank you for coming by and leaving kind words. Your blog is wonderful. I visited your other blog as well, and it is such a comfort to know that we are all on the same path: to seek God. You have inspired me for my next post after New Years day. I want to live a life for God, but it gets hard sometimes with all the stresses in life. We do have to be consistent and consciencious. I wish you a healthy and blessed new year!! Anita

donna said...

Your photos are lovely - I really like your "time tree" - it's so pretty. Happy New Year.

French-Kissed said...

Dear Debra,

What light you shed with your beautiful words and images on time. Your few well chosen words tucked among these gorgeous photos are so wise and really tell it all. Thanks for sharing such a relevant post. ~jermaine~

Anne~fiona and twig said...

Sometimes I want to ask for a few extra hours in each day, do you know what I mean? But knowing myself, I wouldn't use them wisely...I'd just use them to worry more, or fret about things I have no control over.

You have been instrumental in helping me to realize what a waste of time it is to sweat the small stuff. To acknowledge just how fragile and precious life really is. You have taught by example, and for that, I thank you.

p.s. I can't return your call 'cause my phone is dead! Trapped at work for several more hours, grrrr. Talk soon!

Love,
Anne
