The Clock is Ticking

Teach us to number our days aright that we may gain a heart of wisdom (Psalm 90:12).
You can't read it in this photo, but the meter (placed there at "mom's" request) says "expired." The inscription mentions the humor of the dearly departed one. And yes, it's funny . . . for a moment. And then really sobering. You can read the photo to mean that our time here is short. You can also read it to mean that we won't stay "parked" beneath the stone forever. A day of resurrection is coming. Either way, eternity has a powerful way of shaping this life.
