I have been increasingly aware of time lately. It is a limited resource. None of us can get any more of it. We all receive a ration of 24 hours each day. 8,760 hours per year. 1,440 minutes a day.

Somewhere in the past several years I crossed a threshold. Silently. I now have more money than time. I would rather pay for something than take the time to do it, or make it work. An hour I spend fighting with the plumbing is an hour I'm not spending doing something else--talking with my wife, sitting on the deck or reading a book.

I think of the parable of the talents. I cannot help but think we will be held accountable for the way we used the time granted to us by our Master. I hope the 60 seconds you spent reading this wasn't a waste....
