'Guard well your spare moment's. They are like uncut diamonds. Discard them and their value will never be known. Improve them and they will become the brightest gems.' ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
If we only say "I never have a spare moment" then we really have pushed ourselves to the limits. Such is the hectic pace of life that spare moments are often squeezed out. This is a pity. We are the losers if this happens to us. Spare moments are ours to do what we want and where we want. We can discard them, we can waste them but they are ours to make the most of.
Spare moments can be used for quiet reflection, for prayer, for a walk, for rest, for a word of thanks or encouragement. When used in this way they are indeed gems. A spare moment just to be still is also a gem. They are ours to hold and to use. How are you going to use yours today?
