Imagine there is a bank that credits your account each morning with $86,400.  However, it debits what is left over at the end of the day. So every evening, it deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every penny, of course! Each one of us is a member of this bank. It is called the Time Bank.

Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off, as lost, whatever you have failed to invest to good purposes. It carries over no balance. It allows no overdraft . Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the day’s deposits; and the loss is yours. There is no going back. There is no drawing against the "tomorrow." You must live in the present. Invest it so as to get as much from it as possible. The clock is running, it is your future. Make the most of today...

starry host

Jaw-Dropping Milky Way Galaxy View Wins Astronomy Photographer of the Year

"Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens; Who created all these?
He who brings out the starry host one by one, and calls them each by name.
Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing."  (Isaiah 40)
