The race against time.

I tried to post this earlier today - but found out I didn't have a phone/Internet connection, for most of the day.  As you can see, I'm now literally mere seconds away from posting this before the clock strikes 12:00 midnight.  I wanted to get it posted on the "right" day...

But speaking of time.  You see, this clock has no hands. (They got broken off.) I love it anyway and always pull this clock out - this time of year.  For reasons I won't get into tonight... I've been "forced" to really (personally) think it through, about this issue of TIME. 
Not just the fact that the Christmas is right around the corner and I'm trying to get e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g done before we head out of town to spend Christmas with family - elsewhere, this year - tomorrow evening. 

But, because life is short. 

We have no idea, for ourselves or for our dear loved ones, how much time remains on the clock of life.

The question is, are we ready?  Have we prepared our hearts and our homes for that moment of truth, when reality hits home and time may be no more?  What we do have, however limited...is... truly...one awesome gift.  Is it not?

Just think about it. 

I don't mean to sound morbid here.  I really, really don't.  But the clock is ticking, hands or no hands... no doubt about it.

One day - time will stand still, for all of us... and then, ready or not, it will go on and on and on and on.....forever!
