1. “You have the gift of time.”
In the beginning of my single life I thought I had too much time. After all, what was time without a man to spend it with? That attitude caused me to waste time wallowing in pity because I was not married in my early twenties as I had planned.

When you are single you have time and occasion to do what pleases God and blesses your soul. Do not take it for granted.
