Life Is But A Minute

From my Heart

Louise Gibson

When asked, “What is the greatest surprise

you have found about life?” Your response

will be, “The brevity of it”


I have lived to a ripe old age, but my

emotions are not ruled by a calendar page.

I am moved to tears by poignant moments in time.

I weep when others weep.

Laugh when others laugh.-

without reason or rhyme.


Yes, life is but a minute.

but eternity is in it…

Keep looking up, dear friend.

Christ is waiting at the cross for you.

His dearest desire is to communicate with you.

Life on earth is not the end.


John 9:4

“I must work the work of Him who sent me

while it is day. The night cometh when no

man can work.


Cross at sunset

      “Life is but a minute but eternity is in it.” I have never thought of it that way. Beautiful!
