"I have been thinking this week about how short life really is. When I was in junior high school, some days would seem like weeks. In some ways, time passes so slowly when you are young. Now? Now time moves quickly. Oh, I don’t feel old or even refer to myself as being old. Yet, I remember passing a mirror not long ago almost startled by the man staring at me. Yes, it was me inside this man’s body. But inside? 'I’m still the boy.'"
"Today, I realize just how valuable time really is."
"1. I don’t have time to waste on things that don’t matter. I have plenty of time for the things that count."
"2. I don’t have time to get moody, self-centered, and irritable. I do have time to love my wife and children."
"3. I don’t have time to wallow in the past over what might have been. I do have time to focus on what God wants to do in my life today."
