Quebec, Canada - “You do not Know the Path of the Wind”

As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things.

Lake Irene trail - Eternity in the Hearts of Man



 He has made everything beautiful in it’s time.  He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.  I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live.  That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God.  I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it.  God does it so people will fear him. 

Ecclesiastes 3:11-14

Splendor is the Sun


 The pride of the higher realm is the clear vault of the sky,
as glorious to behold as the sight of the heavens.
The sun, when it appears, proclaims as it rises
what a marvelous instrument it is, the work of the Most High.

Ecclesiasticus 43:1-2

Grasping for the Wind

 

I have seen all the works that 
are done under the sun; and 
indeed, all is vanity and grasping 
for the wind.

What is crooked cannot be 
made straight.
And what is lacking cannot 
be numbered.

I communed with my heart,
saying, "Look, I have attained 
greatness, and have gained
more wisdom than all who were 
before me in Jerusalem.  My heart
has understood great wisdom
and knowledge."

And I set my heart to know
wisdom and to know madness
and folly.  I perceived that this
also is grasping for the wind.

For in much wisdom is
much grief.
And he who increases
knowledge increases
sorrow.

Ecclesiastes 1:16-18

Nothing New Under the Sun

 

That which has been is what will be.
That which is done is what will be done,
And there is nothing new under the sun.
Is there anything of which it may be said,
"See, this is new'?
It has already been in ancient times before us.
There is no remembrance of former things,
that are to come
By those who will come after.

 Ecclesiastes 1:9-11

Seasons of Life


 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.

"The Sun Rises and the Sun Sets"




Ecclesiastes 1:4-10 (NIV)
Generations come and generations go,
    but the earth remains forever.
The sun rises and the sun sets,
    and hurries back to where it rises.
The wind blows to the south
    and turns to the north;
round and round it goes,
    ever returning on its course.
All streams flow into the sea,
    yet the sea is never full.
To the place the streams come from,
    there they return again.
All things are wearisome,
    more than one can say.
The eye never has enough of seeing,
    nor the ear its fill of hearing.
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

Ecclesiastes 11:3  If the clouds are full, they pour out rain upon the earth; and whether a tree falls toward the south or toward the north, wherever the tree falls, there it lies.
