Circle of Life!

As you get older you think about very different things than when you were younger.  My granddaughters were laughing and splashing in the tub tonight during their nightly ritual.  The youngest one was only worried about the gummy worms I had at my house and how she was going to wrangle them away from me.

Thursday night I barely missed being part of a horrific head-on collision that took the life of one person and sent 2 others to the hospital.  Couldn't help but thing of that persons family that would be getting that heart-breaking call soon.

Today, somewhere in the world, babies were born...today a member of our own family was laid to rest...and today...a close friends daughter got married.

The "Circle of Life"!  How delicate it is...yet how we treat it with such carelessness!  Don't know about you, but to me it's very sobering to look back at the events that can happen in your life.  Just like the song from "Fiddler on the Roof" says...
Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears

Have you thought about your life lately?  If you haven't...maybe you should.  We aren't promised tomorrow or another breath.  The "Circle of Life" is short and goes by much too fast.  Best advice I can offer you is...
Jesus,
Don't leave earth without Him!!!

I'm not!   What about you?????  Think about it!
