Reflections on time gone by:

Memories of time are frozen in our minds and they are picture frames of happiness – sadness – and joy. They bring pieces of learning to our lives – they help us grow and to think clearer. They etch lessons and concepts into our hearts to be drawn on again and again in the future. They help us to learn and to grow in life. They are precious moments of time that will never be forgotten or discarded. They are to be used by us tapered with wisdom and insight from God. I have learned many things in my 10 years since I have been here – I have learned to fail forward, to lead more like Jesus, to prayer more fervently, to trust God more completely, to die to my self more daily, and most of all to use my time wisely because once it is gone - it is gone.
