- An essential part of our lives is the calendar.
- It provides us with a perspective
- In our relationship to our past, present and future.
- It helps us to plan our share of the accomplishment of God's purpose.
- It is a way of recording significant occasions.
- Such as birthdays and important family events.
- It enables us to have uniform observance of cultural tradition and religions festivals.
- It is a daily companion, on the desk or on the wall, giving us a pattern by which to weave the fabric of our personalities.
