This is all that is left to say...

 

 

The Problems of Old Age

 

Remember your Creator while you are young, before the days of trouble come and the years when you say, "I find no pleasure in them."

When you get old, the light from the sun, moon, and stars will grow dark; the rain clouds will never seem to go away. At that time your arms will shake and your legs will become weak. Your teeth will fall out so you cannot chew, and your eyes will not see clearly. Your ears will be deaf to the noise in the streets, and you will barely hear the millstone grinding grain. You'll wake up when a bird starts singing, but you will barely hear singing.

You will fear high places and will be afraid to go for a walk. Your hair will become white like the flowers on an almond tree. You will limp along like a grasshopper when you walk. Your appetite will be gone.

Then you will go to your everlasting home, and people will go to your funeral. 

Soon your life will snap like a silver chain or break like a golden bowl.  You will be like a broken pitcher at a spring, or a broken wheel at a well. You will turn back into the dust of the earth again, but your spirit will return to God who gave it. 

Everything is useless!

The Teacher says that everything is useless.  The Teacher was very wise and taught the people what he knew. He very carefully thought about, studied, and set in order many wise teachings. The Teacher looked for just the right words to write what is dependable and true.

Words from wise people are like sharp sticks used to guide animals. They are like nails that have been driven in firmly. Altogether they are wise teachings that come from one Shepherd. So be careful, my son, about other teachings. People are always writing books, and too much study will make you tired.


Now, everything has been heard, so I give my final advice:

 

Honor God and obey his commands, because this is all people must do.

 
God will judge everything, even what is done in secret, the good and the evil.

 

Ecclesiates 12, New Century Version

Precious Lord, take my hand 
Lead me on, Let me stand 
I'm tired, I am weak I am worn
Through the storm, through the night 
Lead me on to the light 
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home.

At my grandmother's request "God be with you 'til we meet again" was sung at my mother's funeral service in 1941 and I hope it will also be sung or played at mine.

  1. God be with you till we meet again,
    By His counsels guide, uphold you,
    With His sheep securely fold you,
    God be with you till we meet again.
  2. God be with you till we meet again,
    ’Neath His wings securely hide you,
    Daily manna still provide you,
    God be with you till we meet again.
  3. God be with you till we meet again,
    When life’s perils thick confound you,
    Put His arms unfailing round you,
    God be with you till we meet again.
  4. God be with you till we meet again,
    Keep love’s banner floating o’er you,
    Smite death’s threat’ning wave before you,
    God be with you till we meet again.
  5. Till we meet, till we meet,
    Till we meet at Jesus’ feet;
    Till we meet, till we meet,
    God be with you till we meet again.

I asked for strength.........
And the Lord gave me difficulties to make me strong.
I asked for wisdom.........
And the Lord gave me problems to solve.
I asked for prosperity.........
And the Lord gave me brains and brawn to work.
I asked for courage.........
And the Lord gave me danger to overcome.
I asked for Love.........
And the Lord gave me troubled people to help.
I asked for favors.........
And the Lord gave me opportunities.

I received nothing I wanted,
I received everything I needed.
My prayers have all been answered!

This is why I was born and came into the world: to tell people the truth. And everyone who belongs to the truth listens to me." – Jesus Christ

(before Pilate, John 18:37)

Whenever you find you are on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect

                     --- Mark Twain

We have never observed a great civilization with a population as old as the United States will have in the twenty-first century; we have never observed a great civilization that is as secular as we are apparently going to become; and we have had only half a century of experience with advanced welfare states...Charles Murray
