We all know that we only have a short time here. I can remember my elementary school days as if a lot of them were just yesterday. I remember the first day of high school, my graduation, my orientation weekend at college, my Wedding day, the birth of my children, the death of my father, and sooooooo many days in between like they were just days as opposed to years ago. Where has the time gone? At some point, we all come to the realization that we will not live forever, and that life is a lot shorter, and time way more fleeting than we ever imagined! Since we know that this is the case, it just makes sense to make wise choices with the time we have. I have seen the deaths of those who had barely begun to live, as well as the death of those who had lived a long, full life. No matter what end of the spectrum, all left here wishing they had done some things differently. But we’re still here, and while we are living, we still have time to choose to live wisely. And if we don’t know how to do that, we can begin learning by reading the book of Proverbs…in the Bible…after Psalms. Start with one chapter a day and develop a habit of searching out wisdom daily. It will make all the difference in the world.

Wisdom is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her.
