You Seize the Flower...

“But pleasures are like poppies spread, You seize the flower, it's bloom is shed; Or, like the snow-fall in the river, A moment white, then melts forever.” ― Robert Burns, Tam O'Shanter

Revisiting pieces from ten years ago. Where did the years go?  Each year blooms before me, days fly even faster the older I get.  Each moment we are gifted here should be full of life and not filled with fear or worry.  I have been a worrier ever since my first memory.  When a tornado warning came out in St Louis, I would nervously sit on the kitchen chair next to the door that led to the basement.  We were told to always be ready to run to the basement. I believe I learned how to worry at a very young age. 

Storms and weather rarely affect me now...but other things do.  Season change and so do I.

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.  1 Chronicles 16:34
