Cosmos

The end of learning is to know God 
and out of that knowledge,
to love Him and to imitate Him...
by possessing our souls with true virtue.
-Milton-


Just like the  fading cosmos below, everyone of us will fade   in due time.
Photos were taken at my BIL's garden the last time we visited him when he was still breathing last week He passed away yesterday due to stomach cancer. May you rest in peace Dave!

Yes, we will all die when our appointed time is done. Nothing is permanent in this world except God and His words. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

Oh my condolences to you and the family. Those colors of cosmos are so beautiful because we only have yellow and orange here in the country.
