Frozen in amber

Today I was going through boxes of pictures, so many boxes, and as I looked at each of them with different family members smiling, waving, posing, it occurred to me that these were little slices of our life frozen in time like an insect frozen in amber. You look at an insect caught in the amber liquid and it looks alive, almost in motion, yet still, its life gone. My phone has a feature that I love, when you take a picture you can put your finger on it and for a second in time it is in motion capturing the action. As I looked at pictures of my parents and wished I could put my finger on those old pictures and bring them to life again if only for a second. The song says, “Fly me up to where you are above a distant star I wished upon tonight to see you smile, if only for a while to know you’re there, a breath away’s not far to where you are.”

Psalm 39:4-6 “Tell me, what’s going on, God? How long do I have to live? Give me the bad news! You’ve kept me on pretty short rations; my life is string too short to be saved. Oh! We’re all puffs of air. Oh! We’re all shadows in a campfire. Oh! We’re just spit in the wind. We make our pile, and then we leave it.  Have you ever thought that you would know when your time to leave?

 

 

About harolene

Thank you for stopping by for a visit! If you read my thoughts you will see that I am sometimes serious, at other times sappy or funny, occasionally I am sad and sentimental, but I am always sincere! I am a single mother who raised two children, born ten years apart and different sexes so first it was bows and dolls, pretty dresses and boys! When my son was born it was rough and tumble games, baseball, soccer, wrestling and girls! I am known for my "smile" and for my default answer to any situation, "no problem", which was something I didn't realize I did until it was pointed out to me! I am a moon watcher and a star gazer. I am astounded and feel so small knowing that every creature that has ever walked the face of this earth has gazed upon that same beautiful orb that my eyes can behold on any night when the earth is not wearing her cloak of clouds. My parents have made me the person that I am. Their love, veracity in all areas of life, humor and passion for their work and each other have given me hope that my life can actually be a happy one! Chances are if you are reading this you already know all this but again, I appreciate your stopping by! While you're here hit the "Like" button for me and thanks for checking in!
