...whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow.
For what is your life?
It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.
James 4:13-15
The vapor...mist, moved in quietly this morning.
Covering the hills behind our house...the trees.

An hour later it picked up and moved out...gone.
It's hard to think of life as being like vapor, but the Bible says it is.
My mirror says it is.

Indeed, You have made my days as handbreadths,
And my age is as nothing before You;
Certainly every man at his best state is but vapor. Selah
Psalm 39:4-6
If life is truly a vapor, let us live each day of this new year
and every year beyond, to the fullest...
for the One who trades our fleeting days here 
in exchange for eternity forever with Him.
Let's spread out and cover some ground!


  1. I loved this! Yes, I want to live life to it's fullest. . .for His glory! :)
    So nice to have been here at your place.

  2. Amen and AMEN - and perfect timing for me on this Spiritual Sunday as the fog is out in force here as well. :)

  3. I drove through dense fog last week and then it vanished when the sun rose! What a beautiful picture of Jesus - the Light of Life!

  4. "... for the One who trades our fleeting days here
    in exchange for eternity forever with Him". Amazing love!

  5. My young niece was just diagnosed with aggressive cancer. Your post hit home how our life is like a vapour....still...He holds onto us...I'm so grateful for that. Happy New Year Charlotte...

  6. So very true. The older I get the more I realize it. Thank you for sharing. I hope you have a wonderful new year.

  7. What beauty you have in your backyard...fog or no fog.
