“Man goes to his eternal home, and mourners go about the streets… and the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.” (Eccl. 12:5,7)
“We are to remember that while all of our earthly possessions and our bodies will pass away, it is our eternal soul that we are called to maintain. We must make major and minor “repairs” to our souls. This is not a vanity. And while we toil under the sun, our taking joy in our toil and accepting our duties happily prepares us for Heaven. All we have now is a vanity, but what we do now prepares us for the everlasting.”
