Life just goes up in smoke........or so says the son of David.
Smoke, nothing but smoke. There's nothing to to anything - it's all ( like ) smoke. What's there to show for a lifetime of work. A lifetime of working your fingers to the bone? One generation goes its way, the next one arives, but nothing changes - its business as usual for old planet Earth.
The sun comes up and the sun goes down, then does it again and again - the same old round. The wind blows south, the wind blows north. Around and around and around it blows, blowing this way, then that - the whirling, erratic wind.
All the rivers keep flowing to the same old place, and then start all over and do it again. Everything's boring, ( so ) utterly boring - no one can find any meaning in it.
Boring to the eye, boring to the ear. What was will be again, what ( ever ) happened ( in the past ) will (certianly ) happen again. There's nothing new on this earth. Year after year it's the same old thing. (So when ) someone does call out, " Hay, this (Da Vinci code thing or my own personal insights or etc. ) is new" ? Don't get excited - it's the same old story. ( Whether it's the " Holy Grail " or The Da Vinci code or the Bible or Davecathy's story or Secret Familey Recipies - written by myself it will all tell the same story - so it woulden't matter if i read it from the Bible, Da Vinci's code or any one elses own thoughts.).
Nobody ( realy ) remembers what happened yesterday ( last week, last month, last year, or 2000 years ago.) And the things that will happen ( next year, 10 years from now or in 4006AD.) tomorrow?

The words in red are my thoughts added. My apoligies Dave but King David's son said the whole thing more elequently than I could.
As for the differences between LOVE and EVIL? It's human nature to want our own way and to want to fight anyone else who won't see it or agree with our own personal views. Hate and Evil come naturaly- most of the time.
For me believing in a loving familey and a compasionate father was easy - I had those things growing up. As for my husband - he grew up - surrounded by hate, vengence and anger at his biological mother but 100%superimposed on to him - just because she gave birth to him.
Yet to see the love and concern that he has for his daughters can only be described as an excample of GOD'S LOVE. He didn't get it at home - it had to come from some where else.
