Time indeed has very little to do with living except at its beginning or near the end. (Phyllis Bottome, 20th century British novelist)

While we are often quite conscious of time, it really becomes most meaningful as we grow older. They say that nobody wants to live to be 100 until they are 99. Most of us won’t live to test that theory, but we must understand that how we use the time God gives us is the important issue.

Be very careful, then, how you live . . .  making the most of every opportunity. (Ephesians 5:15-16)
