For several months now I have been wrestling with the ideal of ending this blog. There are different reasons to end the blog and to keep it going, however this is the end.
Thank you dear readers for taking the time to read Laughter & Tears! It has been such a blessing for me to write, to share my life and hopefully inspire you over the last four years.
Once I decided that my blogging days were over then came the issue of what to write for the last blog. O, the pressure to end Laughter & Tears well! I thought back over all the blogs I had written and what struck me was nothing. My life is ordinary, not much different than yours and my family and I go through the same struggles and joys that you do. And that is what is so wonderful! God uses me and my unexciting ordinary life and He can and will use you as well.
Then verses from Ecclesiastes came to mind. King Solomon who is thought to have written Ecclesiastes says "there is nothing new under the sun." Solomon was struggling with the vanity (meaning) of life. He says a lot you should read it, but at the end of the book Solomon writes,
"Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man's all." Ecclesiastes 12:13
That is the thought I leave you with...Fear God!
