The Bible Says

Man's Life is as a Shadow
  We took a walk through the field behind our house today.  The sunshine was warm and beautiful, so nice for the end of January.  I usually take my camera, in case we come across something I want to take a pictures of.  We saw crows flying over, a grasshopper that had just hatched out, a lady bug and a spider, but nothing that really caught my eye until we started home.  I kept watching our shadows, along side us, and began to think about how the Psalmist David, Job, and others wrote about our lives.
 All that lived before us were as a shadow, as well as we.  David and Job cast a Godly shadow, and so must we.

From the KJV Bible

Psalm 144:4
4.  Man is like to vanity:  his days are as a shadow that passeth away.

Job 7-1, 9
7.  Is there not an appointed time to man upon earth?  are not his days also like the days of an hireling? 
9.  (For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow:)

  1. I just love the picture you posted, as well as your thoughts about shadows. How quickly life passes and all we see is but a shadow of what once was. Today is what we hold in our hands, full of moments of potential! Thank you for that reminder!
