we live in a world of time in an ocean of eternity.

How long is a day? How long is an hour or even a minute? Time—we live in a world of time in an ocean of eternity. If you think the first line in a paragraph is the most important you’re wrong. It is no more important than the first minute of life or the first breath of life.

Time, but all those who live have time. Some people make wise use of their time and some just float through time. Yet, good use of time isn’t just for the rich and famous not for the CEOs of businesses or powerful people.

Actually, when we dig down into a person and their life it is the poor everyday people who make the most difference in the lives of others.

It isn’t where a person comes from that determines who they will be. What leaves experts scratching their heads is although many times children follow in their parents’ footsteps it isn’t always a given that they will. The alcoholic or addicted father/mother’s children will more than likely follow those same steps, but not always.

And therein is the question, the quandary, why? Why do some make it out and some just stay in the same horrible pattern?

There seems to be some credence to the idea that it is because of someone of importance in a child’s life. It may be a grandparent, another family member such as an uncle/aunt, or a neighbor that becomes a helper an inspiration, and a stabilizer to a child.

It is a person who has or takes the time to be there for the child. To play games with, to mentor in some way the child and I would guess those aren’t usually the people with money. Those are people with the most valuable commodity on earth—time.

Psalms 90:

4  For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.

5  Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep: in the morning they are like grass which groweth up.

6  In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.
