Christmas time, a season of peace, renewal, and rest for body, mind, and soul. An ancient English prayer on the theme of ‚time‘ shows us how to make this happen.

Take Time
Take time to work,
it is the price of success.
Take time to think,
it is the source of power.
Take time to play,
it is the secret of perpetual youth.
Take time to read,
it is the foundation of wisdom.
Take time to be friendly,
it is the road to happiness.
Take time to dream,
it is hitching your wagon to a star.
Take time to love and be loved,
it is the privilege of the gods.
Take time to look around,
it is too short a day to be selfish.
Take time to laugh,
it is the music of the soul.
– Old English Prayer
