Thankful for Time

IMG_3110I recently graduated and completed a Masters in Professional Counseling. It was an intense two-year program, which also included an internship in the last year. It was one of the best seasons of my life and also very busy.  Now that I am winding down from my intense schedule, I currently have some extra time on my hands. At first I felt somewhat disoriented but now I am thankful for this time.

Time is precious because we can never get it back. Therefore, I am thankful to have this extra time and I plan to use it wisely. I am thankful that this time has allowed me to spend precious moments with my family when they came to visit for my graduation. I am thankful this time allows me to catch my breath and enjoy the moment. I am thankful this time allows me to refill my tank with God’s word and soak in His presence and love. I am thankful this time permits me to focus on supporting and helping others.

I am thankful that this time allows me to sit by the river and enjoy the natural beauty of God’s creation. I am thankful for the time that allows me to reflect on the past two years and adjust my goals and focus. I am thankful that I have the time to read the books that I want to read. I am thankful for the time I have to gather my thoughts, ideas, creativity and further develop myself as a counselor and prepare myself for the clients I will see.

Time is truly a gift and precious. I pray and hope that you also, continually cherish the valuable moments, your time, and the time of others because there is beauty and enjoyment in the time we have now.
