Happy 91

Watch and Listen

 

And the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it. Ecclesiastes 12:7

I have watched this little pumpkin return to the earth this wintertime. It has been a good visual for me. Death is a beautiful thing for the one that loves the Lord through His salvation gift. This concept is difficult for the human brain to wrap itself around. Our spirit returns to God at death; breathe in and exhale into the Father's presence. Such assurance in this!

We have not touched or moved the pumpkin, but it has shifted. I want to think that we will have pumpkins next Fall. There is beauty in aging. We should be gathering wisdom seeds from the elderly among us before it is too late. Listen to them, their stories, what God has taught them about life here and Eternal.
