This Life

From life to death, a choice is made, our lives are short, with consessions paid. We learn from the past, our future not known, as we travel on, we carry what is sown. Our burdens are many, our troubles few, without Gods love, we can never get through. Do unto others, as they would to you, for our lord is mighty, and his love is true. By johnaarongreen

Mostly wisdom is not in the choices we make at least for myself and learning from past mistakes would be a blessing. The last two lines put life in perspective though. You send a great message in this timely verse John.

John, i just sat in my car talking to someone,, about life and death... and how it is useless... we are all pawns of death... I'm in a negative mood,, only cause sometimes i don't understand life,, and the games it plays... everything ends in death.. everything has a short span.. well I complain a little, with God, but, you understand.. God is all mighty,, it's just sad that we have to use this pass me by body just to get to him,, or meet his standards.. enjoyed,..p.d.
