Then and Now

no thought of numbered days
they stretched in endless line
no thought of fragile frame
or swiftly passing time
no need to count the moments
a limitless supply
enough to deepen faith
to hold a loved one tight

each day a treasured gift
the end of them in sight
the body growing weary
more thoughts of coming night
familiar faces dearer
no rush to hurry by
faith running deeper, surer
in Him who holds our time

"I will be your God throughout your lifetime - until your hair is white with age.
I made you, and I will care for you.
I will carry you along and save you."
Isaiah 46:4
