Refreshing my Mind

Psalm 39:4-6

4 "O Lord, make me know my end and what is the measure of my days; let me know how fleeting I am! 5  Behold, you have made my days a few handbreadths, and my lifetime is as nothing before you. Surely all mankind stands as a mere breath!
6 Surely a man goes about as a shadow! Surely for nothing they are in turmoil; man heaps up wealth and does not know who will gather!

These verses out of Psalms minister to me greatly. Surely my days are fleeting and my end will be soon, but a breath, but a mist, but a shadow and they are gone. The days that God has given I want to live so that they are a pleasing aroma before the Lord. If I could just keep from wasting any of this precious time with my children and my dear husband. Only through the wisdom of the Lord will I ever learn to count my days and count the moments. Storing them and treasuring each of them.
