Thurdsday Thinking by YoTrip for February 17, 2011-We Are All On Borrowed Time (Vol.2, Iss.3)
We Are All On Borrowed Time
The moment we make our first appearance in this world our life clock starts winding down. Every moment, second, minute, hour, day, week, month and year is critical, yet so often we take our time here on earth for granted. No one is privy to their end date, it resides in the hands of the Father, and so you are charged with enjoying your time as it comes.
Your born on day is a joyous time for all who are awaiting your arrival. The beginning of your life is full of newness and sets the course for your life’s journey. The hands of time are moving quickly with each breathe you take. The profoundness of time is that all who live are given it as a gift, but each allocation is set and measured uniquely for the individual.
The bridge between your time of birth and your time of death maybe short and eventful or it may be long and low key, it is all borrowed. It is the time spent on the bridge of life, which speaks to the essence of who you are or how the world perceives you. The question of how does your bridge look rarely hits home until a family member, friend, co-worker, or acquaintance time on the bridge of life is abruptly ended.
The untimely death of the young or those who are seemingly well or others can send a shock to your system. The departure from the bridge of life and borrowed time is both a wake-up call and an indicator that life is the prelude to death. As surely as you are born to live, you are destined to live to die.
How are you managing your borrowed time? Are you taking for granted you time on your bridge of life? Have you experienced the calling card of untimely death in your life and decided to live, laugh and love well? Use your borrowed time wisely.
Rest in Eternal Peace-A.L.P. (2/5/11)& L.D.(2/16/11)
