What are we doing ?


Posted on May 03,2016 under Uncategorized

Been reading Ecclesiastes……….
Yeah, wanting to stay in this for a while…
To see what God lays on my heart + life.

Ecclesiastes 2:16
” For the wise, like the fool,
will not be long remembered;
the days have already come when both have been forgotten.
Like the fool, the wise too must die!”

Ecclesiastes 9:5
” For the living know that they will die,
but the dead know nothing; they have no further reward,
and even their name is forgotten.”

So, seriously….

The wise – all the things we do to GAIN knowledge
The fool – those that do nothing to GAIN knowledge
= ” neither remembered ”
= ” both die ”

The living….all who are reading this…
Our loved ones that have gone before ….

Everyone = dies and THEIR NAMES are not remembered.

I talk a lot about my Mom…..
Bringing her into my/your remembrance (sp ) wise/dumb ?
if I did not do that would you remember her ?
if I go about my day…10 yrs. later, do I remember her ?
Do I say her name….Marilyn Marie Swaney/ Conrad ?

* as I did her grave for the summer yesterday….
did I linger as long as I use to ?
did I not want to think of her body and how
it lies there now ???? MY MOM ?

Even your NAME ________________________________________
by those you put your LIFE into ……
by those you don’t put your LIFE into…… ( smile )
Even your NAME ________________________________________
will NOT be remembered.


Isaiah 51:8
” For the moth will eat them up like a garment;
the worm will devour them like wool.
But my righteousness will last forever,
my salvation through all generations.” ”

What is OF THE LORD…..
What is OF THE LORD…..is the ONLY THING…
That will last…

Take our names out…
Marilyn Marie Conrad
Janelle Marie Taviano

Are gone….
Mom teaching CEF in her home for years…
only the SPIRITUAL survives….
Africa….only the SPIRITUAL survives..

It puts ” ourselves” into perspective….
We are taken…
we are taken…
We…to be remembered no more…
JESUS….always to be remembered…..

Making a ” name for ourselves ” ??????
