These are some of my azaleas from the front yard. Each year I look forward to their blooming. They have absolutely beautiful color, but alas, they only hang around in all their glory for about a week. Then they are but a memory until next year. The anticipation is more than the realization. Note the scripture below.
James 4:14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
