"You don't know what will happen tomorrow. What is life? You are a mist that is seen for a moment and then disappears." (James 4:14)
Life truly is like a mist or vapor. One moment it's here, then it's gone.
Death is the final bow in a fallen world.
Losing a loved one or a dear friend is never easy. Death seems to catch us unaware. Words are left unspoken. Our "toys" of no value to us after we are gone.
We race through our years never thinking about the day it all stops. We carry on until we are carried out!
It's all rather depressing.
Thanks be to God that He loved us enough to send His Son so that we can live for all eternity with Him. For those who have accepted this gift, we have a future and a hope beyond the grave!
However, time in this world is short and we should be about the Father's business.
We should love like the Father has loved us.
We don't get a second chance after the grave to fix our mistakes now.
Take the time to put others first and love unconditionally. Hug a friend, reconcile with an enemy.
Be the hands and feet of Jesus each and every day!
