Proverbs 14:13 – even in laughter, the heart is sad. and the end of joy is grief
At your family table this week there is one member who will eventually see all the others dead.
Not something we really like to think about, but deep inside we all know it is true.
THE END OF ALL JOY IS GRIEF
I’ve heard that we’re an accident
and when we’re dead we’re gone
If that’s true then what’s the point of living at all?
Meaningless, it’s all meaningless
King Solomon said that
We hang on to life for dear life
Horcruxes and all
But if death just might be something more
Then I may not have to fear it
and life is something too
So I live like I’m dyin
instead of tryin to defeat it
That’s been done
Death ain’t my master
it’s the next great adventure
