I could appreciate this although I have yet to reach the age of retirement. It seems that the more time we spend in prayer the more our heart is made away of how precious is our time on earth. We are travelers and our time here is but short in terms of eternity. We are as flowers that have a short time to bloom and then are gone. Life when we are young seems so long. As we look at our children, we wish to impart this appreciation of time. Yet how can one do this unless you experience it yourself? It has been my humble experience that when we put ourselves under the care of Our Blessed Mother She helps a soul albeit young understand the mysteries of time. She gives a soul an appreciation of time and a desire to see it used well.
One thing that I bring to Our Lady in prayer is the request that when I stand before the Lord I will not see all that I could have accomplished here on earth. Instead, I ask her to help me make use of every moment of time to do the Will of God whatever that may be. In the Gospel today when the Apostles were called to be fishers of men they did not delay. They dropped their nets and followed. Indeed there is no time to lose!
