So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom. (Psalm 90:12)
There will come a day when your childhood stars die. Today two such stars passed over the oblivion. Did we really think they would always be there? There is only One who is everlasting. Why do we exult in the temporal at the expense of the eternal?
Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. (Psalm 90:2)
