There are moments one might wish,
That time could forever stand still.
For in that lovely moment,
Is all the ecstasy a heart can ever feel.
But, life is so fleeting.
Nothing seems to last.
You blink. Poof! It’s gone.
What was present now is past.
Time does not wait.
Without rebate, it marches on.
Prompt, never late, doesn’t negotiate,
Just keeps marching on.
Memories made, fade with age.
The pleasurable and the painful, swap.
Joyful days mingle with sad nights.
Dreams and desires rise and drop.
But, no matter, master this moment, live.
Endeavor to make beautiful memories today.
Listen, laugh, learn, love, leap with joy…
Live, master this moment before life fades away.
Ecclesiastes 5:18-20 (MSG) After looking at the way things are on this earth, here's what I've decided is the best way to live: Take care of yourself, have a good time, and make the most of whatever job you have for as long as God gives you life. And that's about it. That's the human lot. Yes, we should make the most of what God gives, both the bounty and the capacity to enjoy it, accepting what's given and delighting in the work. It's God's gift! God deals out joy in the present, the now. It's useless to brood over how long we might live.
