Pilgrim Jim's Treasure Field
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matthew 6:21 KJV


   1   Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth,
      Before the difficult days come,
      And the years draw near when you say,

       “ I have no pleasure in them”:

  2  While the sun and the light,
      The moon and the stars,
      Are not darkened,
      And the clouds do not return after the rain;

  3  In the day when the keepers of the house tremble,
      And the strong men bow down;
      When the grinders cease because they are few,
      And those that look through the windows grow dim;

  4  When the doors are shut in the streets,
      And the sound of grinding is low;
     When one rises up at the sound of a bird,
     And all the daughters of music are brought low.

  5  Also they are afraid of height,
      And of terrors in the way;
      When the almond tree blossoms,
      The grasshopper is a burden,
      And desire fails.
      For man goes to his eternal home,
      And the mourners go about the streets.

  6  Remember your Creator before the silver cord is loosed,
      Or the golden bowl is broken,
      Or the pitcher shattered at the fountain,
      Or the wheel broken at the well.

  7  Then the dust will return to the earth as it was,
      And the spirit will return to God who gave it.
      Ecclesiastes 12:1-7  NKJV

The following verses are found in Isaiah, chapter 55

   6   Seek the LORD while he may be found;
        call on him while he is near.

   7   Let the wicked forsake his way
        and the evil man his thoughts.
        Let him turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on him,
        and to our God, for he will freely pardon.

   8   "For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
         neither are your ways my ways,"

         declares the LORD.  Isaiah 55:6-8  NIV
