James 4:14 “Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes.”
The other day I had to re-hang a picture where the nails had worked loose. It was amazing looking at all the changes in our family. Our kids were small, not grown and with grown children of their own as now. Our hair was different. The styles were different from clothes to glasses. Thinking back we remembered how different the times were back then.
We have a box full of other pictures taken at different times over the years. Most of them, I can’t even remember where we were at the time or why I took that particular picture. At the time it must have meant something. But memories are fleeting, time is fleeting. Our time here passes so fast. One moment we are welcoming our children into the world and the next they are grown, having children (and grandchildren) of their own. Make the most of the time you are given on this earth.
Our lives are like a thunderstorm that soon passes by. Life is God’s picture frame. How we live our lives in the short time we have, makes up the picture. Do you want that picture to be one of chaos and uncertainty, of selfishness and pride, or one of peace, joy, hope, and sure foundation. It’s up to you.
