Youth

Post  Fenny West on Thu 24 Jul 2008, 11:13 am








Youth
The day time and morning of life
A time of exuberance, activity productivity,
Vigour, vitality, passion, action, adventure, dreams.
A time to yearn, learn and earn.
A time seek the kingdom.
A time to stride, reach and climb,
Scale mountains, cross rivers,
Take risks, invest,
lay the foundations for graduation;
a time to pitch the tent,
Explore the universe,
Challenge status quo;
Go wild and mad;
A day of rebellion.
Time to put the roots down
Time to find the meaning of life
Time to fire your imagination,

Discover and uncover,
A time to find God
And His purpose for life.










Ecclesiastes 12
1 Remember your Creator
in the days of your youth,
before the days of trouble come
and the years approach when you will say,
"I find no pleasure in them"-

2 before the sun and the light
and the moon and the stars grow dark,
and the clouds return after the rain;

3 when the keepers of the house tremble,
and the strong men stoop,
when the grinders cease because they are few,
and those looking through the windows grow dim;

4 when the doors to the street are closed
and the sound of grinding fades;
when men rise up at the sound of birds,
but all their songs grow faint;

5 when men are afraid of heights
and of dangers in the streets;
when the almond tree blossoms
and the grasshopper drags himself along
and desire no longer is stirred.
Then man goes to his eternal home
and mourners go about the streets.

6 Remember him—before the silver cord is severed,
or the golden bowl is broken;
before the pitcher is shattered at the spring,
or the wheel broken at the well,

7 and the dust returns to the ground it came from,
and the spirit returns to God who gave it.
