and finally…….

Aside from our lives, time is the greatest gift we can ever give. Time like our lives, we can never get back. It is beyond value, it is priceless. When you give your time for a cause or a person you are saying much more than “I will help you”, you are saying “I value you so much I am willing to give you what cannot be regained, I will give you a piece of myself that no-one can or will ever have. It is yours to keep forever”. So spend your time wisely but give of it freely for we were created to give, not simply to hoard. Like sand our time is running through our fingers so if WE do not value it, no-one will.
