Week 8 of Count it all Joy

Ecclesiastes 9:9 Live joyfully with the wife whom thou lovest all the days of the life of thy vanity, which he hath given thee under the sun, all the days of thy vanity: for that is thy portion in this life, and in thy labour which thou takest under the sun.

(I think “vanity” is an interesting word choice. I have no idea why, so I looked up a few commentaries. Essentially, the general consensus is that vanity was referring to the fact that life is short.)

“The joy of late love is like green firewood when set aflame, for the longer the wait in lighting, the greater heat it yields and the longer its force lasts.”  Chrétien de Troyes

for King and Country “Joy”

  1. I love this song. And I love the video too, especially since it features Candace Cameron Bure.

    • I didn’t recognize her at first! 😀
