Our Time.......

A version in modern English - "the tide abides for, tarries for no man, stays no man, tide nor time tarries no man" evolved into the present day version we see today. The notion of 'tide' being beyond man's control. 

When i sat by the bedside of one of God's saints, I noticed a big clock in the room where she lay. I remembered that our time on earth compared to eternity is but as James wrote in James chapter 4 verse 14 " whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time, and then vanishes away." 

 
The Dash
by Linda Ellis
 
I read of a man who stood to speak
At the funeral of a friend, 
He referred to the dates on her tombstone From the beginning to the end. 
He noted that first came her date of her birth
And spoke the following date with tears, 
But he said what mattered most of all
Was the dash between those years
 
For that dash represents all the time
That she spent alive on earth.
 
And now only those who loved her
Know what that little line is worth.
 
For it matters not how much we own;
The cars, the house, the cash, 
What matters is how we live and love And how we spend our dash.  
So think about this long and hard.
Are there things you’d like to change?
 
For you never know how much time is left,
That can still be rearranged.
 
If we could just slow down enough
To consider what’s true and real
 
And always try to understand
The way other people feel.
 
And be less quick to anger,
And show appreciation more
 
And love the people in our lives
Like we’ve never loved before.
 
If we treat each other with respect,
And more often wear a smile
 
Remembering that this special dash
Might only last a little while.
 
So, when your eulogy is being read
With your life’s actions to rehash
 
Would you be proud of the things they say
About how you spent your dash?
 
We are given one life make it count!!!
