Make Your Time Count

By Octavia Crawford Turner, Author, and Photographer of Albion, Michigan

365 days a year. 24 hours in a day. 1,440 minutes in a day. TIME. We are each allotted the same amount of TIME. Time is like a vapor-it –is-intangible. You cannot touch it, however, it is there. TIME.

Since we have been blessed to arrive at this point in 2021, let’s review thus far what TIME has done. TIME has allowed some of us to become a year older and prayerfully wiser. TIME removed loved ones from our midst. TIME has brought additions to our family. TIME.

I have learned to understand and appreciate how precious time really is. I encourage each of us to make our moments on this earth count. Let’s make a difference in the life of another. When we share our time with others, we grow in the process. A good place to start is at home by spending quality time with family. In this ever-so-busy society, we need each other more than ever before. Then extend to our neighborhood. Healthy homes + healthy neighborhoods = healthy communities. Healthy communities = healthy states….it is the ripple effect.

A lot of people are hurting. They just want someone to show them that they care. You can be that person. However, to show someone you care takes TIME.

“TIME is: Too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love…time is not.” -Henry Van Dyke
