Time, according to the Oxford English Dictionary , is the most frequently used noun in the English language.

"TIME: time, time frame, timeless, time limit, time machine, timepiece, timescale, timeshare, time sheet, time shift, time-space, time stamp, timetable, time travel, time trial, time warp, time-wasting, ... timing"

How about the passing of time? Sometimes it saunters along and other times it doesn't hesitate for a second look.  Then you look back and wonder what happened to all those days that the calendar accumulated.

Time can be slippery. You can't hold it in your fist, letting it out slowly . 

Photos don't capture time. They merely attest to what transpired at a particular moment in time. 

Take your time.  Time's running out. The time of your life. Times on your side. Time stops for no one. Everything has a time.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8. NIV

"There is a time for everything,
    and a season for every activity under the heavens:

  a time to be born and a time to die,
    a time to plant and a time to uproot, 

  a time to kill and a time to heal,
    a time to tear down and a time to build,

   a time to weep and a time to laugh,
    a time to mourn and a time to dance,

 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
    a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,

 a time to search and a time to give up,
    a time to keep and a time to throw away,

 a time to tear and a time to mend,
    a time to be silent and a time to speak,

  a time to love and a time to hate,
    a time for war and a time for peace."
