I remember my grandfather telling me that the older you get the faster time flies. Laughing at him at the time I thought it was another of his little stories he loved telling.

phone and ask her to text me the list. Then, I would be in trouble 
because I would not have enough time to call her and then get the items 
and get home in time. 

I tried to put in things I thought were on the list, but it was getting
late. Time was running out. 

Then I did something I would later regret. Headed towards the checkout
line, I passed the bakery where they had Apple fritters on sale. 
Without even stopping, because time was getting away from me, I grabbed 
two apple fritters and threw them in the shopping cart. 

Why I did that, who knows. 

When I brought all the items from the grocery store and put them on the
kitchen table, my wife looked them over and informed me that I only got 
two items on her list. “Why didn't you get the rest of the items?” 

All I could say was, “I'm sorry, time got away from me.” Believe me when
I say, that will be the last time I use that excuse. 

I could not help but think of a verse of Scripture. “To every thing
there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven” 
(Ecclesiastes 3:1). 

Everybody has the same amount of time; it's how you use that time that
really makes the difference. Time, as I have discovered, is no excuse 
for not getting something done.
