A Whisper

Your life is a whisper


It is a mist,

a breath


Your lungs take in the breath of God

at birth


And no matter how much time you are given


Your life is still

as fog that quickly dissipates


Eternity envelopes

and swallows up

your existence in flesh


Your spirit is everlasting,



And so many are aimless

and unaware of the brevity


of Life


So precious

so short


But we are reminded

in this moment


that loving

on purpose


on purpose


on purpose


on purpose


on purpose


Is vital

in so little time


to really live


– Susie Stewart

We are here for only a moment, visitors and strangers in the land as our ancestors were before us. Our days on earth are like a passing shadow, gone so soon without a trace.

He was mindful that they were human, frail and fleeting, like a wind that touches one’s skin for a moment, then vanishes.

– Psalm 78:39 (VOICE)


My days go by like a long shadow—stretched thin and disappearing…

– Psalm 102:11 (VOICE)
