As a Flower of the Field

Dianthus Armeria
"As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth."  --Psalm 103:15

Time passes by so quickly, doesn't it?   I captured this image over a month ago while taking a walk up the street with my daughter and her puppy.  Has it really been over a month?

There was another flower I had wanted to capture because of it's unique design and beauty, but alas, when I searched for it this morning, I was surprised to find it had already faded away.  Summer is fading fast, too.

Have you found that when you reach a point in life, you begin to appreciate the many ‘little things’ about it,  that time seems to go into ‘hyperdrive’ and events pass us by in a blur.  But... there are still 24 hours in a day... there are still 365 days in a year.  How does it seem to pass by so quickly and, if it does, where does it go?

Before we know it, snow will be floating down from the sky.  How many times have you said or heard, "Wow, this year has gone by so fast"?  Let's make the most of the rest of the year before it passes by quickly, too.


  1. True enough my friend!! Let's have lunch again soon so we can make new memories for ourselves shall we?? : )

  2. Hey Sweets, beautiful picture, and very appropriate thoughts. I have often wondered why the years go by faster and faster. I once heard that the reason is this: each year is a smaller percentage of the total time we have lived. I'm not sure I accept that. I do know that winter and summer seem much closer to each other than they used to. Yes, the flowers of 2010 will soon be gone. The beautiful fall scenery of Vermont will be out there waiting for your camera before you know it. George

  3. Hmmm... I had never heard the percentage view. I'm not so sure I accept it either. Thanks, George!
