Time





2008 is unbelievably fast! It's December!



What I need most now while the year is winding up, is time. TIME!! and it's slipping away before my very eyes!



I need time.






Time to resume the proper sleeping pattern. Time to tidy up the heavy compartment in my heart. Time to clear up the place, heck the Christmas tree this year. Time to visit my fav blogs, time to blog a little lest I forget what I should never. Time to search for the likeable Christmas recipe. Time to get used to the new car, and better be soon! Time to decide my next trip to Singapore, tickets and etc. Time to prepare for much up coming events...




But what I really need most now, is some quiet time. Time of peace, in the Lord. Time to cry and spill my heart empty, and make room for what's meant well for me. Time for reflection, prayer and thanksgiving.


There is a time for everything,


and a season for every activity under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die,


a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,



a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,



a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,



a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
a time to search and a time to give up,



a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,



a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,

a time for war and a time for peace.



Ecclesiastes 3:1-8




Maybe, it's time to grow up. Time to move along.

Time to stop mulling over things, and realize that it's now that matters, before I miss out moments that are meant to be special.

I have no time to lose! Tons of work to do, cos my folks are visiting me next week!!

And I must take time now to thank whoever that dropped a line of comfort earlier, it surely made things better. Wishing all a splendid December.

こんばんわ、スターダストさん
本当に、12月は、忙しく早いわね。
ゆっくりと、1年を振り返って、今年の出来事を、振り返りながら、時間を感じる事が、大切ですね。

そして、長年の友人である、ランサーとの思い出は、深く、別れがたいと、私も思います。
人間の記憶には、あの車で、あそこに行ったな、なんて、写真を見ながら、鮮明に思い出しますもの。
悲しい思い出、楽しい思い出、共にした時間は、伊達でないです。

心の隙間を、ゆっくりと埋める、時間に感謝しながら!

I always feel the same way too! Tons and heaps of stuff to be done...though work takes up most of my time, I will still spend half an hour every morning to have my quiet time with God. And with X'mas round the corner, it's time to plan for X'mas parties, shopping for pressie, etc, etc, etc.

Yeah! It's so nice and warm to hear that your folks will be visiting you soon. In the meantime do take care and do whatever you can and whenever you can. (^^,)

Time, time, where art thou? I know what you mean there's so much to do, so little time. But you're right that while some things like chores are endless, we don't want to miss out on those special moments.

Enjoy your visit with your loved ones, and may God's love, joy and peace be yours this season, now and always!

For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
the Lord bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
from those whose walk is blameless.
- Psalm 84:11

And Stardust, I'm here yah, my dear friend, so just email me anytime you feel like talking, or just need a ear. *bp sayang you*
