Ecclesoastes 3


The Holy Bible: King James Version. 2000.
Ecclesiastes
OR, THE PREACHER
3
A Time for Everything

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.


i call this the perfect definition of life.

Ahh..this is a good one. It's definitely something to try to keep in mind while we live our lives.

Not to be a 'debbie-downer' but this was also the passage I read at my grandma's funeral during mass.. just shows that this can also be something to describe one's life after they've passed.... if that makes sense. Haha

PS
You're hella sleeping right now. Must've had a long night, eh? LOL - I love you Sam!
