“I have noticed one thing, at least, that is good. It is good for people to eat, drink, and enjoy their work under the sun during the short life God has given them, and to accept their lot in life. And it is a good thing to receive wealth from God and the good health to enjoy it. To enjoy your work and accept your lot in life—this is indeed a gift from God” (Ecc 5:18-19).
I think one of my favorite Disney movies was Beauty and the Beast so when we decided to go to Disney World to run the 5K, I wanted to visit the Be Our Guest restaurant. I tried to make dinner reservations but there were none available. The great thing about this restaurant is that you don’t need a reservation to eat lunch there so that’s what we did.
The line was long, but it was worth the wait– I felt like I was in the Beast’s castle, eating lunch in his ballroom. What a wonderful experience.
Then today I came across the passages from Ecclesiastes 5. God has truly blessed us with good health and the means to enjoy life. When I think of all the things He has given me, I am filled with awe. Never in a million years would I have thought that my life would be so blessed. Thank You, God, for my wonderful husband; thank You for my children and grandchildren; and thank You for the life You have given me.
