a vapor.

At my grandma’s funeral, some letters were read.  Letters that her children and grandchildren wrote.  In my brother’s letter, he included a scripture in which the term vapor was used to describe the brevity of life.

Each day I realize the truth of that statement.

Life is a vapor.

It is over in a flash.

And I see it the most when I look at my precious daughter.


Time has already cheated me.  It has already won.  And it will continue to be the victor.

I can’t beat it.  I can’t hold it.  I can’t stop it.

I can only enjoy it.  Release myself and ride the wave of time.

Hold my daughter.  Love my “people”.  Spread the good Word.

Use my time wisely.

Before it is a gone.

Like a vapor.

    Seriously you need to do the study on Esther, cause you seem to always be in sync with what we are learning.
