Handle with prayer

Life is fragile - handle with prayer.

Psalm 103:15-16 "As for us, our life is like grass. We grow and flourish
like a wild flower; 16 then the wind blows on it, and it is gone--- no
one sees it again." GNB

As we draw nearer to the end of 2010 let us not forget that life is
precious, and short. Time goes by so quickly and one day our lives are over.

Colossians 4:2 "Pray diligently. Stay alert, with your eyes wide open in
gratitude." MSG

We need to appreciate every day we have, and every good thing that we
are blessed with. Open your eyes to what is going on around you.
Everyone has at least 1 thing they can be thankful for. Are you healthy?
have you had breakfast today? Do you own more then one set of clothes?
Do you know that many people cannot answer yes to any of those questions.

Will we live based on what we do not have, or on what we do have? God
has given you and me today and we need to be thankful for the
opportunities that are presented to us today. There are no "Mulligans"
or "do overs" in life.

Lamentations 3:22-23 "The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his
mercies never come to an end; 23 they are new every morning; great is
your faithfulness.
