Sunrise Sunset swiftly flow the days

Sunrise, Sunset

How swiftly the days go by!  Sunrise to sunset, day after day!  The words to the song below a good reminder of how swiftly the days go by and that our lives are but a vapor.

Sunrise, Sunset

Is this the little girl I carried?

Is this the little boy at play?

I don’t remember growing older

When did they?

Sunrise, sunset

Sunrise, sunset

Swiftly flow

the days

Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers

Blossoming even as we gaze

Sunrise, sunset

Sunrise, sunset

Swiftly fly the years

One season following another

Laden with happiness and tear


You may recognize some of the words above from the lyrics of “Sunrise, Sunset” from “Fiddler on the Roof”.   As I meditate on this I am only prayerful that I can pass the following words of wisdom on to my children and grandchildren. May their lives count for eternity.

What words of wisdom
can I give them?
How can I help to
ease their way?
May their trust be
only in the Lord
Day by Day
Proverbs 1:7-10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck. My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.

 My how quickly the days flee away. Now it has just Grandpa and Grandma Lockhart living alone in our house.  However, the Lord has blessed us with 21 grandchildren. I pray as the days go swiftly by, that I will pass on the faithfulness of our Lord from generation to generation.
