Finishing Ecclesiastes

We are coming to the end of our  study of Ecclesiastes tomorrow with Chapter 12.  I will miss my old pal Solomon (if he is the author, and I think he is).  He has taught us many things worth remembering:

God is in charge of our lives.
Our lives are a gift from God meant to lived in joy.
It is duty to lives our lives "under the sun" in enjoyment, eating, drinking, working, and enjoying our spouse.
This book is not a downer, but a tribute to God's love and care.
Wisdom trumps all other traits we might possess.
Death and old age are certainities.

I have enjoyed teaching the ladies' class, and I will miss it.  Thank you God for the opportunity to share your word with eager listeners.
