The writer of this Psalm suggests that living beyond 70 is an exception to the rule. And no matter what we are made of, our bodies will eventually go the way of the quickly fading flowers, the fleeting morning mists, and the dissipating clouds.

This reminder should cause us to ponder the secret of the life that is truly long, eternal life in heaven. It's to number our days, to use the time we have to prepare to live forever. It's to make sure of our salvation through faith in Christ and to lieve each day for Him.
 
Christian friends,   Let us not miss life everlasting by assuming that even the oldest life gives us plenty of time to prepare for eternity. But today is the day of salvation. Sunday is the first Sunday in Advent and we must ready ourselves for the Christ Child.
 
      In bodies that will never grow old,
      We'll reign with Him through years untold;
      O Precious thought, we all shall be
      With Christ through all eternity.
 
 THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - What we weave in time we must wear in eternity.
