Time in a Bottle



If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I'd like to do
Is to save every day till eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you


If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I'd save every day like a treasure and then
Again, I would spend them with you


But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do, once you find them
I've looked around enough to know
That you're the one I want to go through time with


If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty, except for the memory of how
They were answered by you


But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do, once you find them
I've looked around enough to know
That you're the one I want to go through time with...


Borrowing the words of Jim Croce today as I reflect on the wonderful family reunion we just had for the last two weeks in Utah.  Missing my family again, and as my kids open their teacher assignments today, I'm thankful for these wonderful days we've had together...and for the promise of eternity of days like these...

  6. So true. We just got home from a month with family and so grateful were forever:) on a completely different note, any thoughts on raising confidence in girls? My daughter is going to 4th grade and a little stressed.

    1. Hmmm, I'm not sure since I haven't gotten into that situation yet. I try to use positive language with them myself and teach correct principles about who they are. I also tell them often that they are not to be like the rest of the world. So maybe they can be confident in being who they are meant to be--a beloved daughter of God. I think it's all there in our teaching of the gospel in the home. I'mm sure you'll figure it out...let me know how it goes!
