Wisdom from Ecclesiastes

Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the overcast, windy day and birthday for Daryl that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! When I arose at about 5:45, the temp was 75, but that is supposed to be as warm as it gets today, with the cold front moving in and bringing cooler weather the next two days! Well. we know that it will be a long, hot summer, so we enjoy the coolness while we can!

Lots of people were at the park yesterday...even a truck selling T-shirts and other stuff. I don't know what was going on, but the same thing happens every year about this time.

We saw a peacock with the tail feathers spread out, strutting his stuff in front of a garage door. Funny, how different the tail feathers look from the back! Not nearly as pretty! But God is good!

This is for people who make a major job change:

What profit has the worker from that in which he labors? I have seen the God given task with which the sons of men are to be occupied. He has make everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.

I know that nothing is better for them than to rejoice, and to do good in their lives, and also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor---it is the gift of God.
Ecclesiates 3:9-13

Then I hated all my labor in which I had toiled under the sun, because I mist leave it to the man who will come after me. And who knows whether he will be wise or a fool? Yet he will rule over all my labor in which I toiled and in which I have shown myself wise under the sun. this also is vanity. Therefore I turned my heart and despaired of all the labor in which I had toiled under the sun.

For God gives wisdom and knowledge and joy to a man who is good in His sight, but to the sinner He gives the work of gathering and collecting, that he may give to him who is good before God. This also is vanity and grasping for the wind.
Ecclesiastes 2:18-20, 26

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs,

Happy Birthday,Daryl!
