About Me!

Hello! My name is Jessee. I'm 13 years, I've been a Christian missionary in Mexico for a little over 4 years. I have two sisters and three brothers (one of which is my twin). I like animals (especially ducks ), and I read a lot.

BTW: I would very much appreciate your opinions of how I could make my posts better.

Overview on Ecclisiastes.

this book was written by King Solomon and tells us mainly to "fear god and keep his commandments" this book also tells us about a lot of things that are vanity.

Most often used phrases:

"Vanity of vanities" says the preacher "all is vanity."

Then I returned and saw/considered all that was___under the sun.

It is all grasping for the wind.

Random facts and Opinions:

In chapter four verse 9-11 Solomon writes "there is nothing new under the sun."

Solomon is of the opinion that it would be better if one did not live.

Ecclesiastes is a very hard book to understand because it skips around a lot.

Sum-up verse:

Fear God and keep his comandments for this is mans all.
for God will bring every work into judgement including
every secret thing whether good or evil.
(Ecclisiastes 12:13-14)

The Tomb of King Tutankamen

The air is musty and old. Treasure sparkles in the gleam of my torch.
Nothing moves. Nothing speaks, as if the world never has been.
A coffin is in front of me! I shiver with excitement, and remove the lid.
Inside are the most beautiful treasures I have ever seen, from a
ear-old scroll to a sapphire crocodile. Amidst
these riches is something, if possible, more beautiful than them all.

There in all his splendor lies King Tutankamen himself!

The Big Game

The day is just getting hot. About 50 people are in the stands, and every pair of eyes are on me. The crowd is deathly still, a hawker yells in the distance, a baby shrieks, the green grass gleams in the sunlight, the dust blows in my face. I take a deep breath and step up to bat.
