Everything has its Time

For everything there is a season,
and a time for every matter under heaven:

a time to be born,
and a time to die;
a time to plant,
and a time to pluck up what 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 throw away stones,
and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace,
and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to seek,
and a time to lose;
a time to keep,
and a time to throw away;
a time to tear,
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 for war,
and a time for peace.
(Ecclesiastes 3:1-18)

This helps comfort me, hopefully it can do the same for you.

I like that one. Funny this is so close, but this part has always comforted me...

"He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end. I know that nothing is better for them than to rejoice, and to do good in their lives, and also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor--it is the gift of God.
I know that whatever God does, it shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it, and nothing taken away from it. God does it, that men should fear before Him. That which is has already been, and what is to be has already been; and God requires an account of what is past." Ecclesiastes 3:11-15

I immediately thought of the Byrds version of this (song) when I saw it here...i think bc of the sunshine in your photos reminding me of when I used to listen to it so much (sunny highschool days!)..I have no idea how old you are or if you've listened to them, but you should! :>
