Pounding pavements, breathing in and out. Crisp air cupping my knuckles, music mixing dreams and reality together.
Rounding the corner, barren trees stand at attention, paying homage to a resting place.
The stones are evenly spaced, row after row, life after life. Setting sun pours a final goodbye over the land.
This is not the end.
No, final chapters have not been penned.
Life did not cease with the chisel of a name.
We know He came, to be bloodied and beaten, torn to pieces, heart ripped apart by sin's sting...all for us. That we may have eternal life.
But did you know, Life can be lived before the stone appears?
And Life should be lived...
Such marvelous gifts await in heaven's home.
Such marvelous gifts await you here, too.
Do not miss the beauty of your life, or the life of others, as you round the corners. Don't hasten the clock as your day winds down.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10
