“The years of our life are seventy, or even by reason of strength eighty; yet their span is but toil and trouble; they are soon gone, and we fly away.”  Psalm 90:10 – Holy Bible

 “All the world’s a stage,  And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances and one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages.”  William Shakespeare

Days in life grow shorter. They’re fleeting gasps for air.
The span of seven decades at times were hard to bear.
The memories of yesterday are clearer than today.
The necessities of life grow dim – our lives soon pass away.

The bard referred to life of man as being seven stages
The Bible also speaks of life as holding seventy pages.
I’ll soon be seventy eight. Will I reach eighty three?
I have so much to do. Will God still work through me?

When years go by and time runs out we could be terrified,
But God has plans for all of us. For us his Son has died.
He’s given us salvation, a pass to heaven free.
He’s promised us a better place. It’s there for you and me.

Our years in life may vary, but one thing stands secure.
Our time of grace upon this earth is always very sure.
Lord, help me use these latter days to show my love for you –
By sharing you with others and the wondrous things you do.


About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
