Take time to ...
Take time to think, it is the source of power;
Take time to play, it is the secret of perpetual youth;
Take time to read, it is the fountain of wisdom.
Take time to pray, it is the greatest power on earth.
Take time to be friendly, it is the road to happiness.
Take time to laugh, it is the music of the soul;
Take time to give, it is too short a day to be selfish.
Take time to work, it is the price of success.
Take time to do charity, it is the key to heaven.
Take time to love and be loved, it is a God given privilege.

How about you?
Did you know...
Jesus, you are dayspring; an unquenchable light in a dark world.
Jesus, you are good; you do not change like shifting shadows.
Jesus, you are for me, who can be against me?
Jesus, you are my foundation; when all around me quakes I am secure in you.
Jesus, you are my provider, you meet all my needs.
Jesus, you are the truth; there is no duplicity in you.
Jesus, you are my joy; disappointment and anguish fade in your presence.
Jesus, you are faithful, you will never let me go.
Jesus, you are my righteousness; your blood cleanses me from all my sin and shame.
Jesus, you are my rock; I build my life on you and you hold me firm.
Jesus, in you my heart rejoices.
