A Time for Everything

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Howdy and Happy Monday

Well this week has seen the start of two families into marraiage contracts blessed by God and one dear friend’s mother homegoing to Heaven. It’s also seen one of the sweetest women on my tennis team stand in battle with lung cancer brought on by smoking that ended over a decade ago and another dear tennis friend’s, whose daughter is an Aggie hoping that the donated bone marrow she received will reverse her leukemia. My youngest son came home from simulated Iraqui desert warfare and my middle son will start seminary in the fall. Two friends have aging parents whose brittle bones have broken and they will make decisions on how to care for them and my spiritual music minister will spend take care of a wife whose time on this earth is growing short. But also soon new babies will grace the lives of young couples and the love that never ends will start again.

The poem and verse today is from Ecclesiastes 3 

A Time for Everything

There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven— 

A time to give birth and a time to die;

A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted. 

A time to kill and a time to heal;

A time to tear 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 throw stones and a time to gather stones;

A time to embrace and a time to shun embracing. 

A time to search and a time to give up as lost;

A time to keep and a time to throw away. 

A time to tear apart and a time to sew together;

A time to be silent and a time to speak. 

A time to love and a time to hate;

A time for war and a time for peace. 

What profit is there to the worker from that in which he toils? 

I have seen the task which God has given the sons of men with which to occupy themselves.
