Just a Vapor

I waited inside the vehicle while my husband took care of business. Reading, I didn’t notice him at my passenger window; he had brought me a small cup of coffee. After sipping, I watched as very small amounts of steam (vapor) swirled atop the Styrofoam cup. Just a vapor…

Ever noticed an actor’s breath escaping as they speak in outdoor winter scenes? I’ve even seen it come from their horses. It’s a sure sign of an on location filming. Just a vapor…

I often used room vaporizers when our children were infants. Steam relieved their stuffy noses and chest congestion. Just a vapor…

“Come now, you who say, ‘Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit.’ Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. For you are just a vapor that appears for a little while, and then vanishes away. Instead, you ought to say, ‘If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that.’ But as it is, you boast in your arrogance; all such boasting is evil. So for one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, for him it is sin (James 4:13-17 NASB).”

My life, your life…

It’s just a vapor.
