the grass withers and the flower fades

Image hosted by TinyPic.com

there are so many texts in the bible that speak of the grass withering and the flower fading (Isaiah 40 and the Sermon on the Mount mention this thought) ... the Lord compares it to our lifespan ... how quickly we here one day, and the next we have left earth's stage ... the flowers are earthly beauty - which in our culture is so valued - but that too fades quickly ...

so why do we fret and fuss so over things that are only temporal? why don't we enjoy the journey more and trust in Him who walks beside us?

just wondering outloud ...
