Life Is a Passing Thing


Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.  Matthew 24:35 (NIV)
Recently, I asked my sister, Peggy, for permission to share some of her poems on my blog.  She did not hesitate to give that permission.  Like me, Peggy, believes that the inspiration for her writing comes from God.  Please enjoy this poem and take its meaning to heart--that life truly is a passing thing.  Only what's done for Jesus Christ will last.  May God bless each of you today.

Life Is a Passing Thing
By Peggy Pfleider

The grace and beauty of a bird in flight,
The dainty flutter of a butterfly’s wings,
Makes me happy enough to sing.
Enjoy them now;
It’s a passing thing.

Life is like this, so live it for Christ,
Enjoy it now,
It’s a passing thing.

The breeze that blows on a summer night;
Enjoy it now,
 It’s a passing thing.

The beauty of a sunset,
The wonder of sunrise,
Enjoy it now,
It’s a passing thing.

Life is like this
So live it for Christ
Life is a passing thing.
