I Don't Fade


The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever. - Isaiah 40: 8




Man, who is born of woman, is of few days and full of trouble.  He comes forth like a flower and fades away; he flees like a shadow and does not continue. - Job 14:1-2

but...

Whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. - Romans 10:13


We do not lose heart, even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. - 2 Corinthians 4:16



It sounds trite enough, until you feel yourself fading.

  1. That verse by Isaiah is on the front page of my bible. I love it. Hope you're feeling ok. I have to remind myself on an hourly basis sometimes to keep my focus on our loving Creator. I always get back to center whenever I willingly do that. Blessings to you!!!

    1. It's a good one, Gail. Thanks for your concern. I'm fine, but these photos made me think of the transitory nature of life and so I went with it. I do go through cycles where I lose focus and need to be reminded that so much of what's around me, especially the trying things, will fade away. It changes my priorities. I'm also thankful that what makes me who I am won't and wanted to share how.
