Shelf life

We went to dinner with some friends this weekend, and we talked about moving on and future plans.  It made me think of timing, how things happen for a reason, and how everything in life has a shelf life.  Things are right for us at certain times in our lives, but not everything works at the same time.  Moving to Eagle Mountain seven years was the right move for us, but now it seems we might be moving on.  If our house sells.  Eagle Mountain has a shelf life.  Jobs do.  Callings do.  Even friends.  I think the point I thought about was that things wear out or stop being useful or no longer serve their purpose, but we shouldn’t expect everything to last forever.  We should use what we have, and be comfortable with that fact that something may replace it in the future.
