Eat… Drink… Enjoy Life!

December 27, 2009

 

This past holiday week our family has enjoyed the benefits of a full house!

Filled with out-of-town family, friends, laughter and lots of eating! 

Food, Food and more delicious FOOD!  🙂

Ecclesiastes 2: 24- 25

A man can do nothing better than to eat and drink and find satisfaction in his work. 

 This too, I see, is from the hand of God,

For without him, who can eat or find enjoyment?

In the book of Ecclesiastes, Solomon ponders all the anxieties, stress and work of life.  He finds himself becoming discouraged with life in general; calling it “meaningless”.   Then, in this small verse he seems to find a bit of resolve.  To sum it up he says, take the time to enjoy the fruits of your labor… Enjoy Life. 

I will be honest with you.  Recently I have found myself wrestling with similar thoughts… Is it all really just meaningless?   But, in the end just as Solomon said, I too see that finding satisfaction in our life’s work is from the hand of God… for without him who can eat or find enjoyment. 

As the holiday season and 2009 come to a close, no matter if it has been a good or really bad year, find some satisfaction in at least one thing in your life, thank the good Lord and enjoy it!
