Words to live by...

This was posted on my friend Pat's blog, Back Porch Musings. A wonderful blog and I encourage everyone to visit. What a beautiful lady and beautiful blog.

The clock of life is wound but once,
And no one has the power
To tell just when the hands will stop,
At late or early hour.
Now is the only time you own,
So live, love, toil with a will.
Do not wait until tomorrow
For the hands might then be still.
Truly words to live by.

How appropriate for today! I've been trying to teach my 2nd grader how to tell time. Ugh! How is it that she learned to tie her shoes all by herself at the age of 3, she could count by 2's, 5's, and 10's when she was 5 and sometimes she can outwit her 16 year old brother... but reading a clock alludes her?! =) Blessings...

Thanks so much for the mention, here! I put the verse on my side bar, so I can see it every day.
