I now look around my beautiful home and think "this is so temporary", it can be gone in an instant. Of course, I know it is temporary but I need to be prompted occasionally.
I do not want to be depressing, just sharing my reminder that earthly things are earthly!
Make your life count for non-material stuff.
ps. This scripture touched me on Grateful Heart's blog about the road being unsure.
Whether you turn to the right or the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it." ~ Isaiah 30:21 NIV
