Searching for the meaning in life.
Worship from the womb to the tomb.
Ecclesiastes is a rather strange book to me so as you can see it came out a somewhat strange picture. There seem to be many things we do daily in our lives and things we strive for listed as futility. "All is vanity and striving after wind." Towards the bottom right of the picture, Yes, you see a woman seated at a piece of furniture called a vanity. At first I added this for a chuckle. Then as I considered her being primped and centered on her looks, I began to see how vain she was about appearances and thought it quite appropriate.
On the left edge is a woman holding up a young child. On the right edge is a stone tomb. The crowd consists of young and old, rich and poor, servant and mistress, people you recognize and generic people. "Fear God and keep His commandments, because this applies to every person."
I feel that our purpose is to worship from the womb to the tomb and that we should be happy in our labor.
