The shadows are fleeting at the moment because February and March are our wettest months of the year.
Psalm 144:3-4 New International Version (NIV)
"Lord, what are human beings that you care for them,
mere mortals that you think of them?
They are like a breath;
their days are like a fleeting shadow."
Psalm 144:1-2 The Message (MSG)
"Blessed be God, my mountain,
who trains me to fight fair and well.
He’s the bedrock on which I stand,
the castle in which I live,
my rescuing knight,
The high crag where I run for dear life"
