a word from the message

I was reading Ecclesiastes this morning in The Message and thought I would share these verses with you. Here goes:

Seize life! Eat bread with gusto, Drink wine with a robust heart. Oh yes -God takes pleasure in your pleasure! Dress festively every morning. Don't skimp on colors or scarves. Relish life with the spouse you love Each and every day of your precarious life. Each day is God's gift. It's all you get in exchange For the hard work of staying alive. Make the most of each one! Whatever turns up, grab it and do it. And heartily! This is your last and only chance at it, For there's neither work to do nor thoughts to think In the company of the dead, where you're most certainly headed. Ecclesiastes 9:7-10 the Message

Let me know how it goes. Tye out.

Thanks for sharing! I've not read that passage from The Message. Gotta love it when the commands are "eat bread", "drink wine", and "dress festively"--
annonymously from a recovering Baptist and a confessed carbaholic and shopaholic!
