Vapor in the Wind

My four-year-old ran up onto the porch where I was working and said, “Look at all the bubbles, Mommy!”  She held a bubble wand in one hand and a container of bubble liquid in the other.  As she blew the bubbles, they floated briefly and then popped.  She said, “They pop just like THAT!”

As I watched the bubbles float about for a moment or two, I noticed that some quickly sank to the ground while others soared high into the sky.  I realized that in the context of eternity, we are kind of like bubbles.  We only have moments to sink or soar before turning back to the dust from which we came.

“What is your life?  You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.”  James 4:14

Prayer:  Lord, thank you for giving us breath each day to glorify your name.

Thought for the Day:  What can I do to make an impact for Jesus before my time on Earth is over?
