Though even thinking on the subject of time may prove discomforting, it is not a bad idea—especially at the beginning of a new year.

    As we look into  year 2010  we look at a block of time. We see 12 months, 52 weeks, 365 days, 8,760 hours, 525,600 minutes, 31,536,000 seconds. And all is a gift from God. We have done nothing to deserve it, earn it, or purchased it. Like the air we breathe, time comes to us as a part of life.

    The gift of time is not ours alone. It is given equally to each person. Rich and poor, educated and ignorant, strong and weak—every man, woman and child has the same twenty-four hours every day.

    Another important thing about time is that you cannot stop it. There is no way to slow it down, turn it off, or adjust it. Time marches on.

    And you cannot bring back time. Once it is gone, it is gone. Yesterday is lost forever. If yesterday is lost, tomorrow is uncertain. We may look ahead at a full year’s block of time, but we really have no guarantee that we will experience any of it.

    Obviously, time is one of our most precious possessions. We can waste it. We can worry over it. We can spend it on ourselves. Or, as good stewards, we can invest it in the kingdom of God.

    The new year is full of time. As the seconds tick away, will you be tossing time out the window, or will you make every minute count?

 Sonal, time and space are two which material life of living beings can not understand fully, but souls and intellect make attempts to understand these aspects, time as 24 hours is a mesure of Planet Earth and its orbiting around itself, and 365 days is the period Earth takes to orbit SUN. Space is not only what we "see" above our heads, up above the sky, is also space, universal, where galaxies do exist, sages without moving an inch out of the material space, bodies in mother Earth, but their souls exploring the galaxies have given wisdom of the universe.Science and technology is now in the process of experiencing it, by the process of science, experiments.

An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in.  A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.

We will open the book.  Its pages are blank.  We are going to put words on them ourselves.  The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day.

Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
