12th November – St Josaphat

Since getting ill, I’ve been blest to receive many Mass cards and expression of kind thoughts. Some have included prayers and reflections. One of them is the following TAKE TIME poem. It serves as an excellent starting point for a philosophy of life.

“Take Time”God's grace

Take time to think:
it is the source of power.

Take time to read;
it is the foundation of wisdom.

Take time to play;
it is the secret of staying young.

Take time to be quiet;
it is the opportunity to see God.

Take time to be aware;
it is the opportunity to help others.

Take time to love and be loved;
it is God’s greatest gift.

Take time to laugh;
it is the music of the soul.

Take time to be friendly;
it is the road to happiness.

Take time to dream;
it is what the future is made of.

Take time to pray;
it is the greatest power on earth.
