Halloween will be different in many ways this year and I'm not just talking about the coronavirus pandemic. For the first time since World War II, people in all parts of the world will be able to see the full Halloween Moon and we'll "fall" back in time when we go to sleep that night. AHHHHHH!!!

It's 2020, so if we actually went back in time, it might not seem like a big surprise. The good news is that it's only an hour so do forget to reset your clocks, and change your batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors

Speaking of time, some of us had a lot more time on our hands during the past six months and it's been both good and bad. Here's something else that I've learned during these difficult times. Time has become more important to me especially as I grow older.

Think about it, songs are written about time. The Alan Parson Project sang about how it flows like a river. "Time" was the song that we sang at my high school graduation ceremony and Time did not go fast. We weren't hitting the notes, we were clobbering them over the head.

Josh Turner tells us that Time is Love but if you ask me, time is so much more then that. You've heard the expression "Time is money." We treat time like money: We invest, spend, and waste both of them.

Time is our life and time is our most valuable asset. At the end of our life, we'll spend a lifetime of money for someone we love for just a little more time. Why? Because it means something to us.

So what do we do with our time? If you've met someone who left everything so that they could do something, they understand the importance of time along with life and a purpose.

So use your time for a purpose. We were created on purpose for a purpose and that should be a life message. USE YOUR TIME FOR A PURPOSE! What is your purpose?

Maybe, you can find your purpose here. I have and maybe you will too. When you figure it out, the rest will take care of itself, and don't settle for less.

So how are you going to spend your time?
