We are but mortal beings…flesh and blood…here on earth for a time, but then gone. Our life, as fleeting as the wild flowers we find in a meadow…beautiful one day, and wilted the next. Our bodies, as lowly and fragile as the dust and ashes we return to. Even the kind acts, the mercy and love we’ve shown others during our time on earth will eventually fade from memory. So make the most of the day God has given you.
