The Climb

On Top of the World - Almost

“The Good Lord gave us mountains so we can learn how to climb.”

I reached the top of a mountain Sunday night that I have been climbing, well, for all intents and purposes, my whole life.

We can fill our time and our lives with a lot of things. From noise to meaning and everything in between.

But we only have so much capacity, so much time. And although life can be very forgiving, time is not. The sand in the hourglass of life never takes a holiday and the amount of sand that we have left at any given moment is never within our view.

As Keith Urban sings, “days go by.” Games are played. Seasons change. Relationships begin and end. Dreams and memories both fade and are made anew. People die. And the hands on the clock never stop moving clockwise.

So we must fill our days and nights the best we can by doing what matters most. To us. Individually.

Filling ourselves full of that which most satisfies our minds, our hearts, and our spirits. Immersing ourselves in and with the people, activities, and experiences that we most enjoy. Living on purpose.

Filling our time with what matters most. While we still have time to fill.

Leave no doubt,
