Ecclesiastes 3:1-11

Such a beautiful verse I came across from a funeral I attended last month. The words are so powerful that it struck me.

There is indeed a time for everything. God’s time.


There is a time for everything,

And a season for every activity under heaven

A time to be born and a time to die
A time to plant and a time to uproot

A time to kill and a time to heal
A time to tear down and a time to build

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

A time to scatter stones and a time to gather them
A time to embrace and a time to refrain

A time to search and a time to give up
A time to keep and a time to throw away

A time to tear and a time to mend
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 does the worker gain from his soil? I have seen the burden God has laid on me. He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.


Life has an interesting way of telling me that I am a special chocolate chip cookie baked personally by the hands of God (well, just as everyone of us!). I am loving the challenges. A widow at a young age yet keeping a positive view of the future. Still a believer of magic, fate and true love, taking each day one small step at a time. I have a grand dream! ;-)
