This week I started reading the book of Ecclesiastes. I did a study on Ecclesiastes a few years ago that I enjoyed. I find it to be one of the most interesting books in the Old Testament. I am looking forward to seeing what I learn while reading it again.
Three of my kids made a potato pets for Awanas this week. With very little help from Mom they created some unique potatoes! I just love watching them get creative even when one of them almost got purple paint all over herself and my dining room wall! Let’s see if you can guess what each of them made…
Here is what I read and journaled this week:
It’s Monday the start of a new week and a new book in the Bible! Ecclesiastes has a lot to teach us if we would just stop and listen… (please pray for my oldest daughter who is flying out to visit my sister and her family!)
1 The words of the Teacher, son of David, king in Jerusalem:
2 “Meaningless! Meaningless!” says the Teacher. “Utterly meaningless! Everything is meaningless.” 3 What do people gain from all their labors at which they toil under the sun?
4 Generations come and generations go, but the earth remains forever.
5 The sun rises and the sun sets, and hurries back to where it rises.
6 The wind blows to the south and turns to the north;
round and round it goes, ever returning on its course.
7 All streams flow into the sea, yet the sea is never full.
To the place the streams come from, there they return again.
8 All things are wearisome, more than one can say.
The eye never has enough of seeing, nor the ear its fill of hearing.
9 What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.
10 Is there anything of which one can say, “Look! This is something new”? It was here already, long ago; it was here before our time.
11 No one remembers the former generations, and even those yet to come
will not be remembered by those who follow them. -Ecclesiastes 1:1-11
Amen, Amen, Amen…
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: – Ecclesiastes 3:1
God tells us that it is better to not be a loner. That when there are more than one, you are stronger and can defend each other against attacks.
In marriage there should always be three of you present – the husband, the wife and God. A marriage that has God interwoven in with the husband and wife is a strong marriage.
Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. – Ecclesiastes 4:12
I really appreciate you stopping by today. Do you Bible Journal or use another art /craft to show your love for our Savior? If so I would love to see what the Lord is working on in your life. Just post your link below!
Remember – you don’t have to be a Bible Journaler to link up! All I ask is that it is something you created to express your love for our Savior or something that God laid on your heart.
We had 3 link ups last week! I am so excited! Please be sure to share this link up with your Christian friends and bloggers who like to create things!
