Time to be Mindful

I noticed this inscription on the top of the "Cross" in our village (Lymm, Cheshire).
According to Wikipedia: "Lymm Cross is in the village of Lymm, Warrington, Cheshire, England. It is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade I listed building.
The cross dates from the early to mid-17th century and was restored in 1897. It is constructed of sandstone and stands on an artificially stepped natural outcrop of red sandstone. Its shaft stands in a square pavilion of red sandstone with square corner pillars. It has a stone roof with a pedimented gable to each face and ball finials. Above the cross is an extension which carries a stone ball and an ornate weather vane. On the east, south and west gables are bronze sundials of 1897 carrying the inscriptions "We are a Shadow", "Save Time" and "Think of the Last".
The adjacent stocks are separately Grade II listed"

It is the first time I have ever noticed these inscriptions as usually we are in a hurry to go somewhere ….. but now, due to the coronavirus outbreak, the once daily walk provided the perfect opportunity to slow down and "save the time" to take notice of things usually taken for granted.
Great find and capture

Interesting capture and details. It is great that using a camera helps us see things we would never have noticed before.
