  1. What a great haiku.
    Powerful words – make the most of each day, death is the only certainty we have in this life.

  2. Nice message.

  3. Absolutely!!….no one can escape that, neither a king nor a pauper!! If you are born then the only truth is that one day you will be gone!!

  4. And how we FLOURISH! If only for a season.

  5. The Good Word.

  6. awesome one. It is deeper than the previous one.. Thanks for sharing it with us, I feel proud reading it. 🙂

  7. The ultimate truth…

    This was amazing MMT… So deep and powerful….

  8. an insightful & powerful write. life & death in so few words.

  9. As strange as it sounds, this verse has always been a favorite, because it gives me comfort that when I sin and fail again and again God is not shocked…and HE never does.

  10. unpredictability of life. well said! 🙂
