All that is was once before ... but

All that is was once
All that will be
is even now

Each experiences
something new

But it's not new
'cept for you
and me.
This moment
alone does it

I see that.
You live long enough
You see
how things
that are now
were also
that once before.

my mother
had in her 20s and 50s
may be
to experiences
in my 20s or 50s

Not the same
but enough similar
to realize

realities of yesterday
are the
realities of today
future tomorrows.


I can relate to current college students because I was once one. Been there ... done that.

"That which has been is what will be, That which is done is what will be done, And there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which it may be said, 'See, this is new'? It has already been in ancient times before us. There is no remembrance of former things, nor will there be any remembrance of things that are to come By those who will come after." - Ecclesiastes 1:9-11

Nothing stays the same.

"One generation passes away, and another generation comes; But the earth abides forever." - Ecclesiastes 1:4

It is futile, vane, meaningless to seek satisfaction in people and things. We are not satisfied, are we?

"I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and indeed, all is vanity (or futile, meaningless) and grasping for the wind." - Ecclesiastes 1:14

We need the Lord. Look to Him and there we will find ultimate fulfillment. For He is the answer to all we seek.

"... I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." - John 10:10

"What comes from man will never last,
It's here today, tomorrow past;
What comes from God will always be
The same for all eternity!" - Spencer
