Take Time – 12 December 2006

We have a small, decorative plaque that was given to us as a gift. It sits on a bookshelf, and it’s been a long time since I’ve read the thoughtful words of advice printed on it. Here is what it says:

Take Time

Take time to think –
it is the source of power.
Take time to play –
it is the secret of perpetual youth.
Take time to read –
it is the fountain of wisdom.
Take time to pray –
it is the greatest power on earth.
Take time to love and be loved –
it is a God-given privilege.
Take time to be friendly –
it is the road to happiness.
Take time to laugh –
it is the music of the soul.
Take time to give –
it is too short a day to be selfish.
Take time to work –
it is the price of success.
Take time to do charity –
it is the key to heaven.

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
