Sunrise, Sunset

Sunrise, Sunset

Is this the little girl I carried?
Is this the little boy at play?
I don't remember growing older

When did they?

Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly flow
the days

Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze

Sunrise, sunset

Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tear

You may recognize some of the words above from the lyrics of "Sunrise, Sunset" from "Fiddler on the Roof" The words are a good reminder of how swiftly the days go by and that our lives are but a vapor. As I meditate on this I am only prayerful that I can pass the following words of wisdom on to my
children and grandchildren. May their lives count for eternity.

What words of wisdom can I give them?
How can I help to ease their way?
May their trust be only in the Lord
Day by Day

Proverbs 1:7-10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but
fools despise wisdom and instruction. My son, hear the instruction of
thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: For they shall be an
ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck. My son, if
sinners entice thee, consent thou not.

My how quickly the days flee away. Now it is just Grandpa and Grandma Lockhart living alone in our house. However, the Lord has blessed us with 13 grandchildren and 1 more coming in August, 2011. Three of our four children live near us and one lives in Brazil as a missionary. We are thankful for the blessing they are to us!
