Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography

I found this video with a wonderful message so important especially after my trip to The Grand Canyon was so profound. BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!

Live & Learn

“At 68, Rob Elliot has guided 200+ trips on the Grand Canyon of the Colorado river in Arizona.”

How do you want to be remembered, when this life joins the wind?
What did you leave, in these chasms, upon these lives, young & curious?
What did you write? What dust in the rain, sand in the rivers?

Those you touched, embraced and kissed, loved… what echoes there?
How will it travel, your wisdom, your story, your suffering and joy?

These walls, silent, deafening, ancient and new.
What did you make them, what did they make of you?
A life running, teaching or learning, what is escape?
What did you find?

Wind, replenishing rain, sun.
Who did these thorns see?
What did these waters wash from you?
The stars, in the abyss beyond, how did they shine, on you?

Will you release the storm, the scars, whirling as they go…

  1. Thank you for the Reblog Francine, interesting to see how others think but often sad too. As I shared with David, the Bible tells us that I have life wisdom as a Senior but it also tells us if that is all I have then my life will count as nothing and in time there will not even be a memory of me, just like a flower that blossoms and then dies, it’s petals will be blown away.

    But if my wisdom is Godly the seeds will be grounded and grow roots and other blossoms will bloom and this life cycle will continue for Eternity, God’s wisdom like His Truth never dies.

    Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

    Psalm 103:14-16 For He knows our frame;He remembers that we are dust. As for man, his days are like grass; As a flower of the field, so he flourishes. For the wind passes over it, and it is gone, And its place remembers it no more.

    Christian Love from both of us – Anne
