NOTHING NEW?

Nothing new under the sun,

So says Solomon…

Ecclesiastes

Proclaims man’s needs,

To follow God in man’s work done!

Be happy with the wife of your youth,

Old Solomon considered this truth….

Hard for him

With many women,

Living under his roof!

One wife–his big regret,

Would he have been faithful yet…?

So many women

Love over brimming,

Changed his mindset.

Jonathan Caswell

Ecclesiastes is one of the wisdom books in the Holy Bible.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.

      Well, I’m typing while my wife is having dialysis…and I’ve been forceably retired, collecting Disability—and have Parkinson’s. But God is good and His mercy DOES live forever—and so shall we, by faith in Christ Jesus—God in human flesh πŸ™‚

        Taking care of my wife is a full-time job, for a number of years…and she’s had to take care of me, too! No kids—“we” had cancer. But God has indeed blessed us and we made Him the Center of our marriage…29 and 1/2 years ago! How are you and your family?

        I am sorry, I cannot not be your Dad…no matter how much you want me to. I don’t know anything about you, other than your email….and following the same pattern as others who beg for money. I really cannot help. As much as I’d like to! Please find someone else to get what you need. Are there any Christian churches near you, or helpful government agencies to apply for help from?

        WELL–at the moment I’m suffering through a head cold…as my poetry suggests. The wife is down in the laundry room. A relatively normal evening around here Ladies are learning to play “Majong” at a nearby gtable. I;m going back to our apartment soon —have to kick this head c old before tomorrow afternoon, when i accompany my wife to dialysis for the evening.

        That is okay—but more okay if you pray for your family, and how best to get them the food they need. I do not have the resources to help you out there. (Which is why I blog on a “free” blog site)
