Reflection on life
How great the mystery of life
Its wonders to behold;
Who knows what path a life will take,
The future canít be told.
A life may start in a motherís arms,
The way that Nature meant;
Yet later on that life may end,
Cut short by accident.
A life may thrive in happiness,
For many, many months;
One heart may beat for a century,
Another only once.
Some lives may prosper seamlessly,
Without a blemish grow;
While others have adversity
To toss them to and fro.
The Bible says about a life,
No promises to keep,
Consider lilies how thy grow,
They sow not, neither reap.
A human life has no more worth,
Nor is it grander than,
That lily in the field that grows,
By will of Natureís hand.

The human life has greater value than lilies and birds, and Jesus said it so. If God takes care of the lilies, much more so will He take care of the human life. Sadly, we blame God for most things He has nothing to do with, like wars and drugs, abortions, drunk drivers, and all things under the sun, even climate change. But if we look inside ourselves, "the future can be told" and we can make or break our LIFE, by the choices that we hold.
To live life aimlessly is EXISTENCE, but to live life with a purpose is LIVING.
