When Grinders Cease-Ecc.12.1

Recently I had to have a root canal. No fun. I could not help but think of Eccl. 12:1, "Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say, “I find no pleasure in them”— 2 before the sun and the light and the moon and the stars grow dark, and the clouds return after the rain; 3 when the keepers of the house tremble, and the strong men stoop, when the grinders cease because they are few, and those looking through the windows grow dim..."
I remember reading this chapter as my Dad was "passing away" in 2005. It was amazing to see this very strong, 6'5" man, begin to stoop and fade away. I am reminded again to REMEMBER MY CREATOR and thank Him for every day of health on the earth as trouble comes. You?
