(Day 52) All things must pass away ...

Remember the beautiful blooms that the amaryllis gave us just a few weeks ago ? (see posts on day 22 and 24). How quickly life passes - what was young and strong and beautiful just a short while ago soon becomes old and weak and no longer attractive. Take hold of those things that matter most in life - family, friends, relationships, Him.

Old and weak, I believe, but no longer attractive? I doubt!

Looks very attractive in my eyes.

I agree... it's still very beautiful. It's just beautiful in a different way.

Great post!

@M.Hassan & Krista - thank you. Yes, I also agree about the beauty (I had my tongue in cheek a bit - I was referring to the superficiality in the world which typically discards or ignores those who once were young and strong and beautiful, like yesterday's news). I always appreciate your comments.
