I plan to retire...right after lunch on the day I die! Until then I'm here to serve God, love people and talk about Jesus!

This morning I'm beginning Ecclesiastes once more. I love it! It's a wonderful reminder of the way the world really is. I often get caught up in the activities of "being busy" and "making a difference" that I forget the basic truths of these words. Here are Solomon's words to start the day and a video to illustrate them,
Smoke, nothing but smoke. [That’s what the Quester says.]
There’s nothing to anything—it’s all smoke.
What’s there to show for a lifetime of work,
a lifetime of working your fingers to the bone?
One generation goes its way, the next one arrives,
but nothing changes—it’s business as usual for old
The sun comes up and the sun goes down,
then does it again, and again—the same old round.
The wind blows south, the wind blows north.
Around and around and around it blows,
blowing this way, then that—the whirling, erratic wind.
