I can think of
few other phrases that sum up the life of us little humans in a better way.
We are few in days – and those days are full of trouble.
I was reading this piece yesterday morning and the passage leapt off the page at me…
- Maybe because I might be struggling with what is linked below there. (Maybe? 😉)
- Maybe because parenting feels like a struggle right now.
- Maybe because work feels like too much the last few weeks.
Not trying to complain…
I think I am simply going through a phase where everything feels hard.
Maybe we all are.
Gosh life is so short and beautiful, isn’t it?
“Man who is born of woman
Is of few days and full of trouble.
2 He comes forth like a flower and fades away;
He flees like a shadow and does not continue.
3 And do You open Your eyes on such a one,
And bring me to judgment with Yourself?
4 Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean?
5 Since his days are determined,
The number of his months is with You;
You have appointed his limits, so that he cannot pass.
6 Look away from him that he may rest,
Till like a hired man he finishes his day.
-Job 14: 1-6
