To Everything There Is A Season

daisy-tileAs a young child, I learned Ecclesiastes 3:1 quickly. “To Everything There Is A Season” is etched on my father’s tombstone. There couldnt have been a more appropriate phrase chosen. He was a healthy 30 year old man who went to work….and never came home. Just like that experience, there have been many others that just do not make sense. I am sure that everyone has experienced things that they think shouldnt have happened or things that just does not seem to make sense. In trying to reason why things happen sometimes, I was reminded of Ecclesiastes 3:1-8……

 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
