We don’t see eye to eye




I’m not a fan of deadlines

their headlines


for emphasis

Tick-tock, tick-tock, the clock goes

slowly with no  empathy

and determined

As a bride walking down the aisle.




I was just thinking, ‘how did this word start anywhere? It has uneasy connotations, deadline

Checked out the English Oxford English Dictionary and Aha, here is the meaning

           A line drawn around a prison beyond which prisoners were liable to be shot.

           It is said prison guards would watch prisoners, from sentry boxes perched atop the stockade

That makes sense, that’s why I never liked the word

like what line is dead really?



Hence I ask the Lord to teach me to number my days.

For the time is moving

It ain’t waiting for anyone, as they say.

I don’t want to waste time

And I don’t want to be ‘shot’

Therefore, I want to use time wisely.

Also, I want to recognize opportunities when they knock at my door

And make hay while the sun still shines. Even the Lord Jesus said, “I  must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work”  John  9:4. In other ways, we must quickly carry out the tasks assigned to us by the One who sent us.

Because I want to fulfill my destiny

reach out to those I need to

help those that can make use of my help

I want to be of purpose

run my race well Lord, help me stay in my lane

and to the best of my ability

The Lord giving me grace



favor with Him

and with men


For The Lord Jesus grew in stature

and in favor with God

and with men

A student is not above their teacher.

Therefore, I follow the footsteps of my Lord

By numbering my days.
