All Flowers Fade

November 8, 2007

Flowers fade, as does the glory of man. Within each season, brings unexpected changes, trials, and joys. It has been my prayer that I would wear, within each day, wisdom like a necklace; like a tablet written upon my heart.

Jonathan Edwards said in one of his resolutions: “Resolved, that I will live so, as I shall wish I had done when I come to die” (#17). It is appointed once that man will die. In the midst of this ever changing world in which I can barely keep up, I am resolved, like Edwards, to live as Christ would have me live my life. To live without regrets or “what ifs.” By God’s grace alone, I believe this is attainable.

When my flower fades, I long to hear the words, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.”

    Samantha,

    Hey! How are you? I hope well. I love the website. It looks great. Great thoughts as well. I too, long to hear when I die, “Good and Faithful Servant.” I learned about the Mercy Seat in my first year of college and it’s been a hard thing to shake ever since.

    I hope that you have a great Wednesday and talk with you soon!
    Ashley
