kjv@Ecclesiastes:12:1@ Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them;
kjv@Ecclesiastes:12:2@ While the sun, or the light, or the moon, or the stars, be not darkened, nor the clouds return after the rain:
kjv@Ecclesiastes:12:3@ In the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those that look out of the windows be darkened,
kjv@Ecclesiastes:12:4@ And the doors shall be shut in the streets, when the sound of the grinding is low, and he shall rise up at the voice of the bird, and all the daughters of musick shall be brought low;
kjv@Ecclesiastes:12:5@ Also when they shall be afraid of that which is high, and fears shall be in the way, and the almond tree shall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail: because man goeth to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets:
kjv@Ecclesiastes:12:6@ Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern.
kjv@Ecclesiastes:12:7@ Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
Upon our deaths nothing more can be said or done. That in which we put ourselves to on this earth will cease and no longer be remembered. We have the option of spending this remaining time doing for ourselves or we can follow after our Lord and Shepherd to His final pastier. Fear God, and keep His commandments: for that is the whole duty of man. The end of all things is vanity if not for God.
From our perspective everything may appear vain if this is our life and our end. From God's perspective nothing that He does is vain. He created us and set the time frame for us here among the earth bound with reason and purpose. What He has for us here and beyond that is for His pleasure
