Bluebell Books ~ Short Story Slam Week - 15

I'm joining in with Bluebell Books and writing a short story or poem about the image above.
Join in if you would like.

The Hourglass can mean lots of things. I remember the little one my Grandma had in her kitchen to time things. I remember watching the sand run through and then whenever it was it was done.

Now that I am older I look at the hourglass and think of life how we are just like a dot at the end of a pencil when our life began.

How each piece of sand is a part of our life , some fall quickly , others take there time. But in the end this life is over on earth.

Some days I want the sand to never end just keep flowing but then I don't control my life God does. I just wait and wait to see what a new day brings. Knowing that there will be a day in Heaven where no more pain , no more tears , no more sadness just life forever. We will have time forever & ever.

The hourglass will be no more.

I liked this, Caroline, with your thoughts on the sand as well as how God controls our lives. Great analogy with it! And I too look forward to that day when we step into eternity! What an adventure that will be!! Beyond our wildest expectations!
