THE FLOWER FADETH

The flower (orchid) you see in the photo just bloomed. The drooping flower in the back was the first of the season and is now about to drop off. And then there’s the bud that hasn’t bloomed yet. Every time I look at these flowers I think about how beautifully they portray our fragile and temporary lives on this earth. One generation passes away and another comes into the world. What a picture of life! It makes me think about my parents whose lives on this earth are over. And my grandchildren who are at the beginning of their life’s journey, and their children yet to be born. And me, in the latter years of my life, still here but ready to drop off when my Lord calls me home. 🙌

Isaiah 40:8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

  1. Thanks, Cathy. Yes, nature is a constant reminder of the temporality of life. Try as they might to forget about it, mortality is in the back of everyone’s mind. I’m so grateful to the Lord for forgiving my sins and granting eternal life in Him.

  2. How short life is Cathy, even if we lived 100 years it is so fleeting. I think at times how people used to live to be 4-8 hundred years old and wonder would I really want to of lived hundreds of years? Many Blessings.
