Number my days

via Daily Prompt: Measure

We celebrate birthdays and anniversaries, but few people take the time measure their days. The fact of dying remains in the nebulous future when we quote our age in years. However, if we count our age by the number of days we have lived or expected to live, we have to face the jarring truth that we have an expiration date.

It’s very hard to think about dying and its inevitability. Nevertheless, the span of a person’s life is a measurement of a journey from birth to death.  Therefore, since we have to face that end day and we have no control over when it occurs, let us concentrate on the time that we can control. We are certain about that space between birth and death so we will make the best of it for ourselves and our fellow men.

Count each day and rejoice in it.  King David sums it up like this, “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom”(Psalm 90:12, KJV).
