Bible Marginalia- Ecclesiastes 1-3

Bible Marginalia Series- #77

Have been preparing to lead
 a retreat for clergy
wives last weekend.
The Spirituality of Change-
and a look at Ecclesiastes 3:1-8.
Using the work of Joyce Rupp in 
Praying Our Goodbyes.

But, found out that I needed to
 read and study all of this book.
Needed to get hold of vanities and
striving after the wind.

Two page layout for Chapter 2 and 3.
Simply using circle tags.
Added in on the left a copy of the book mark 
we had for each person.

The right side is a bookmark from a retreat led about 
15 years ago.
The thing about change is:
you always keep talking about it.

Left side with bookmark filled up.
Added this in with washi tape.

Right side with Chapter 3.
He has made everything beautiful in its time.

Right side with book mark flipped
 for extra journaling space.

Our God wants us to find JOY in our days.
Whatever God does endures forever.
Nothing can be added to it or taken away.
God has put eternity in man's heart.

In this space of time that we have here on earth-
there is nothing better than to eat
 and drink and find enjoyment in your work.

Here is this section we learn that vanity
is the Hebrew term- hebel.

It means vapor, or mere breath.
And all are from dust,
 and to dust we will return.
Thankful- that there is more than this
brief breath of time.

Circle and rectangle tags
Washi tape
