The sands of life are quickly running out!
(George Everard, "Help on the Way to the Better Land!" 1873)
"The time is short!" 1 Corinthians 7:29
With each of us, the sands of life are quickly running out! Friends, neighbors, relatives are gone to their long home — and we are treading fast upon their heels! As we look into the graves of those who die, let us remember we must soon follow along the same path.
"Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time!" Ephesians 5:15-16
"Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom!" Psalm 90:12
