Time, Sun and Dogs

As I have become a vintage person, which sounds better than aged clergyman, I have developed a deep appreciation for the time the Lord allotted to me. Trifles trouble me and I am growing to detest even the idea of wasting time.

Dr. Heartsill Wilson wrote: "God has given me this day to use as I will, what I do today is important, because I am exchanging a day of my life for it."

The Great Blonde thinks I am carrying this to extremes. As I worked on an article the other morning her cheery voice informed me, "Larry, the sun is coming up!" My irritated response resulted in another night with the dogs. I merely asked, "Is it in the East?" "Why do you ask?" "Because it's not news unless it is in the West." My train of thought had been broken and my response nearly broke a 47 year marriage. Okay, I have never claimed to be a wise old man.

Moses, one of the greatest men who ever lived understood the need to use time wisely so much so that he asked in Psalms 90:12 "So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom."

When I read this verse to the lovely Joyce her look implied perhaps Moses will sleep with you and the dogs tonight.

Time is the measure that is used to accomplish things with eternal weight.
