I am paraphrasing here~
the actual verses are

As for man, his days are like grass;
he flourishes like a flower of the field;
for the wind passes over it, and it is gone,
and its place know it now more.
Psalm 103:15-16

~~~

In the big picture....
our lives here on earth are so very short.

We are here for one main reason~
to prepare for our eternal existence
either in Heaven or in Hell

We receive our reward when we show our obedience to HIM

If I can keep this as my focus then my heart has peace.

Chas, I have not been here in awhile...but I do know that you have touched on an important point, and shared a beautiful image...life is fragile, and when we truly realize that, it becomes so very precious.
Hugs, Nancy
