"Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize?...Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly;" 2 Cor 9:24-26

Fleeting Moments

A few weeks ago a rose bloomed on our rose bush.

I wanted to take a picture of this rose, but never stopped to do it.

A few days later I noticed the rose was welting away.

a welting rose

My chance for a picture was gone.

All our moments are fleeting. What is here today, is gone tomorrow.

We should never think, “I can do that tomorrow.” Tomorrow may never come.

Do not waste your moments. Stop to smell the rose, to smile at a child, to enjoy the little things of life.

Fleeting moments: these are all we have. Make the most of them.
