Finding wisdom at a funeral

2It is better to go to the house of mourning
   than to go to the house of feasting,
for this is the end of all mankind,
   and the living will lay it to heart.
3Sorrow is better than laughter,
    for by sadness of face the heart is made glad.
4The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning,
   but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth.

Ecclesiastes 7:2-4

  1. I also like....or the pitcher is shattered at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern, and the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it. Ecc 12:7 I hope you had a safe trip home and you were able to experience hope at the funeral.
