January 19–Time Is So Precious

Teach us to number our days aright that we may have a heart of wisdom.

Psalm 90:12

Maybe it’s because I’m 50 years old…maybe it’s because I have experienced the loss of many precious friends and family members. Whatever the reason (I think it’s God’s gift) I am so deeply aware of how very short and fleeting our lives are.

I don’t say that to be morbid. I say it from a heart of thankfulness to our Holy LORD for this day, this breath, this opportunity to live and breathe and be in relationship with others and experience and enjoy this world…and this time I have been given.

No, recognizing that our days are short is wisdom to live more fully. And by God’s grace and truth, power and love it is wisdom to live more kindly, more compassionately, more authentically, more generously, more willing to forgive—more thankfully!

May we each ask our LORD to teach us to number our days aright and give us His heart of wisdom. It’s time to do this because time is so very precious.

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
