“Life is short, glory is eternal.”

This is the Price family crest; we trace our heritage back to Wales in the 11th century. The motto, shown here, is “Vita brevis, Gloria aeterna”, which means “Life is short; glory is eternal.” I am not entirely sure of the spiritual standing of my forbearers and it is possible that they meant that glory for themselves would last forever. However, I would much prefer to understand it through a biblical lense: Our life here on earth indeed is short, but GOD’S glory will last through all eternity.
