Life is fragile, handle with prayer.
Okay, some of you aren't going to like my post today. It's not intended as a downer, but rather a reality moment remembering it's part of God's plan for us to get old and to depart this life. Life is full of endings and new beginnings. We graduate from school, retire from jobs, complete courses, and pass from earth. Earthly living is a temporary status.
Actually, this passage really spoke to me as my husband and I can hardly move after two intense days of moving outdoor furniture, pressure washing, painting, weeding, etc. Our bodies ached so badly we could hardly get into bed. We have laughed our way through the pain though and thanked God for what we've accomplished!
The plaque in our planter says, "Life is fragile, handle with prayer." Our prayers cover a multitude of categories. The salvation prayer, where we thank Jesus for his saving grace and dying for our sins and surrender to Him as Lord of our lives, is the one that allows us to read Ecclesiastes 12 with confidence and not cower. For we know, the best is yet to come!
