A brief reflection on time, opportunity, and responsibility
The past is a rock, written and locked.
Kept warm in your heart or rued in the dark,
it's chiseled in stone.
The future is mist, where all choices exist.
Great hopes and grand dreams, or trivial schemes -
The present is clay that we shape every day.
The marks that we make, in time's kiln we bake,
but never alone.
Always take care that the story you share
is filled with the deeds you'd be proud to read
in front of His throne.
"The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present." - Alice Morse Earle
