James reminds us that life is nothing more than a vapor, here one minute and gone the next.Â We make big plans, talk of big activities, and schedule a lot of appointments only to realize that those appointments are âtentative.âÂ The plans we make are only temporary and for the most part uncertain.Â Life is very unpredictable, and little is sure.Â It has been said that the best laid plans of mice and men are never for certain.Â
