A Mist

Chris Pirtle

Where did it go? It was just there alongside us, while on a mountainside with my best friend chasing our latest adventure. It raced with my girlfriend (soon to be wife) and me in college together, falling in love, planning our future.  Even on a Wednesday night a long time ago, I was about 10 or 11, outside a little church we went to, talking to an adorable little girl named Karen, not realizing that we would later be married, this year for 35 years. I certainly saw it during the births of our three children. Soon, too soon they were off on their own, marrying wonderful spouses, starting families, making their way in the world. When we celebrated my father’s 91st birthday it was there with us. I watch my grandson, now three, soon to be 21, as he plays, and learns and grows. It’s there too. He says, ”I wuv  you Pap!”  

There are a few lines of a song you may know that goes, “Time leaves you with nothing mister, but boring stories of old glory days.”  

Time, it does slip away. I look back at how I’ve filled the time in my life. Some of my life has been filled with great things. Some not so great. But how incredibly important it is – how you fill the time that you have.  

James 4:14, “Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.”

It does slip away. It so slips away. Use the time that you have to love like Christ. Be love to everyone.

An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.

I believe that you need to publish more about this subject,
it might not be a taboo subject but generally
people don't talk about such subjects. To the
next! Kind regards!!
