Before reading it would probably be best to read: Ecclesiastes 7!

I try not to take anything to seriously. Life, even death, have become laughable subjects for me. After you go through so much what can you do? But I recently read this and it’s changing my mind a bit:

It is better to go to a house of mourning
       than to go to a house of feasting,
       for death is the destiny of every man;
       the living should take this to heart.
 Sorrow is better than laughter,
       because a sad face is good for the heart.

 The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning,
       but the heart of fools is in the house of pleasure. (Ecc. 7: 2-4)

Now I’m wondering if I’m going about this all wrong. Understand, I’ve never really mourned. I find times when I’m alone for too long that my mind dwells on the death of my loved one’s and I can’t help but cry for hours on end. It’s been a year and a half and I still cry about my dad’s death once a week, while putting on a front that it completely doesn’t bother me at all. But I’m finding that:

When times are good, be happy;
       but when times are bad, consider:
       God has made the one
       as well as the other.
       Therefore, a man cannot discover
       anything about his future. (Ecc. 7.14)

 This is so true. I wish I had some inquisitive things to say about all this, but at the moment that’s what I got.
