Brief

“Lord, remind me how brief my time on earth will be. Remind me that my days are numbered—how fleeting my life is. You have made my life no longer than the width of my hand. My entire lifetime is just a moment to you; at best, each of us is but a breath.” —Psalm 39:4-5, NLT

A breath, a flicker, a wink

of time — this beautiful drama,

shade and sun, is brief,

and even a slip of it, 

a sliver from the whole,

is precious. This gift

of life, through each 

variation and shift, 

is our becoming, leading 

us along a stardust road 

back to an eternal home.
