Handle with care I wish I could post,
a stick it note to remind of what matters the most.
Distractions, directions unprofitable and robbing;
relentless in their unfocused pulling and prodding.
But my days are few upon this earth,
to make an impact of valued worth.
The reins have to be taken back;
no longer the less valuable plans to detract.
Focus, you only have one life to live.
Frail, is this only life to give.
Here today, and gone tomorrow;
let me cherish each one without resentment and sorrow.
Life is fragile and can break like a dam.
So, Lord teach me to measure my days, that I may know how frail I am.
To gain the worth of each day given.
This time on earth; this limited edition.
Invest in the works, the love and matters of the soul.
To fulfill His glory is our heavenly goal.
“LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am,” (Psalms 39:4).
