A Little Timer Full Of Sand

I remember as a child watching a little timer full of sand, and it would run from top to bottom, when I turned it over in my hand.

My Mother used it to cook eggs, putting them in the water one by one, and when the sand ran from top to bottom, she knew that the eggs were done.

It made me think of the minutes and hours God gives to me each day, and how I let so many slip by not knowing what to do or what to say.

But that all changed the day I met the One who invented time, and He showed me how to savor each moment, to see the riches and make them mine.

For all is there, it is a gift, all these blessings from above, and if you use each and every one, each moment of time will be full of love.

I learned what joy can be in a moment, what happiness contained in an hour; the day I met you, my world changed again, as the "mine" became an "our".

What wonder to anticipate each coming day, to run to see the new joys waiting for me, and to gather them up and bring them to you, to share it all, 'cause now I'm part of "we".

Each moment I want to fill with love, each grain of sand-time I have to give,
and let you know a million times each day, that I'll love you more each day that I live.

The sands may be flowing thru the bottle, each moment a treasure because of you, and I thank God for every wondrous minute for our love so deep and true!
