Time is a-creeping

I am quite surprised – when I put them in last year, they didn’t look like they were going to amount of anything. But my creeping thyme (ground cover) is blooming beautifully:

Speaking of creeping thyme, a few years ago, I suddenly realized that time was silently creeping away whether or not I was paying attention. Time was just simply ticking away second by second, moment by moment…

I argued, “But…. wait…. there’s still much more I would like to accomplish!” But time didn’t seem to wait or slow down because of my concerns, and continued to creep away. It was then I started to be protective of my time. I started to evaluate the things I do that fill my time. I began to value the time that is given to me.

For the rest of the time I have left, my desire is that I would be taught to number my days so that I may apply my heart to wisdom (Psalm 90:12).


This post was meant for Saturday, but I wasn’t able to post it before time crept away in the midst of my anniversary weekend. See what I mean about time that is a-creeping”?

I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend. I will be back tomorrow. :)

  1. My thyme doesn’t look like that! I wish it did….
    I understand you are in Arkansas. I’m in Hot Springs and love it here. But maybe thyme doesn’t like it here as much as me! blessings, marlene

  2. Happy Anniversary!!! Your thyme is beautiful and what a wonderful reminder of “time well spent,” being so important!
