Like a Flower...


 
1 Peter 1:24
For, "All flesh is like grass, and all its glory like the flowers of the field;
 the grass withers and the flowers fall,

James 1:10
But the one who is rich should exult in his low position, 
because he will pass away like a flower of the field.

Job 14:2
Like a flower, he comes forth, then withers away; 
like a fleeting shadow, he does not endure.


 This time  of year always re-reminds me of how man's days are like a flower...

Soon dust will claim its Must once more
In every bud and bloom it bore
And just like flowers flare-fade-fall
We too will answer Maker’s Call

Dusk garners in Time’s daily death
We fuss, and draw its gifted breath
Then live, laugh, love, and pray, my dear
All that we have is now and here

Who can the scythe of Time evade
Who can escape the reaper’s blade
Who can the wrath of God endure
So, make salvation’s calling sure

..for who knows when death’s bell will toll
When dust will claim all but the soul
When we will falter like a flow’r
On the altar of Final Hour
