Happy New Year!...

We hope that you and yours have had a wonderful holiday season. The New Year will bring some exciting things to Weekly Photo Tips, we have a bunch of new products that we are reviewing for you and a bag full of tips, tricks, and links to share.

Until then (when the holidays are over and the normal rhythm of life returns), we would like to wish you and yours a happy, healthy, and safe New Year and leave you to consider the following:

Imagine there is a bank that credits your checking account every single morning with $86,400, but it carries over no balance from day to day.

Every evening the bank deletes whatever remaining balance you failed to use that day.

What would you do? Make the effort to spend every cent, every single day of course!!!!

Well, here is your chance because each of us has such a bank. Its called TIME. The great equalizer, you don’t have less because you are poor or more because you are rich. We all have the exact same amount, it is what we do (or don't do) with it that makes all the difference.

Every morning, God credits each of us with 86,400 seconds.

Every night He writes off, as lost forever, whatever time you have failed to spend, failed to invest wisely.

Your time bank carries over no balance. It allows no overdraft.

Each day it fills your account for you.

Each night it empties the remains of that day.

If you fail to use that day's deposits, the loss is yours and those around you.

There is no going back. There is no drawing against the "tomorrow".

You must live in the present, live on today's deposits.

Invest some of that deposit in service to others.

The clock is running. Make the most of today.

To realize the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother who gave birth to a premature baby.

To realize the value of ONE WEEK, ask the person waiting for an organ transplant.

To realize the value of ONE HOUR, ask the parent whose child is late coming home from school.

To realize the value of ONE MINUTE, ask a person who missed the plain home for the holidays.

To realize the value of ONE SECOND, ask a person who just avoided an accident.

Treasure every moment that you have!

Remember that time waits for no one.

Yesterday is history.

Tomorrow is mystery.

Today is a gift from God.

That's why it's called the present!

God bless you and your time.
