Life and Death

 

When we compare the present life of man with time of which have no knowledge,

it seems like the swift flight of a lone sparrow through the banqueting-hall in winter ...

This sparrow flies swiftly in through one door of the hall, and out through another.

While he is inside, he is safe from the winter storms; but after a few moments of 

comfort, he vanishes from sight into the darkness whence he came.

Similarly, man appears on earth for a little while, but we know nothing of what went

before this life, and what follows.

Therefore if (Christianity) can reveal certain knowledge, it seems only right that we

should follow it.

 

-BEDE,

A History of the English Church and People

Genesis 36.33

Good Morning Robert Vegas Bob Swetz 

The poem hits home

James 4:14 "...yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes."

I have marveled at the birds in my yard who are oblivious to these days we humans find ourselves in.  Innocence has its value!

I totally agree Myrl and I think all living animals & creatures may detect our situation, we are all God's creations and all in it together ...
