yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring

July 24, 2012

For what is your life?
It is even a vapor,
that appeareth for a little time,
and then vanisheth away.
—James 4.14

  1. Miss Rosen, I don’t connect with the Biblical passage. Life is not measured in time. Not to be measured at all really.

    And we never vanisheth away, I believe. We die but the trace- or perhaps some better word- carries on.

    Your title and the image I like though. Life is filled with moments and we never know what the next one will bring.

    A thought provoking post.

      i feel youu ~*~

      this post was inspired by a statement i made that words are vaporous. i’ve never said vaporous before, let alone applied it to words so i sought some way to consider this. i began with the photo then i looked for a quote and the title is the first line of the Biblical passage written beneath.

      it is not so much that i agree or disagree with the words because i do not hold to time literally, and i believe energies do not perish in death but transform into something that is unknown, but not unknowable.

      but what i love about this post is that it humbles me, just the pure energy of humility in that it reminds me no matter what i believe there is another layer that goes deeper and that answers cannot be held, but only drawn and released so much as each breath.

      that and, mmm, i dont know, something else. something about vapor, where it all began. in this space where energy and matter connect ~*~

  2. That’s what makes it so full of wonder.
