I'm especially tenderhearted this morning...
...as I think specifically of a family, mourning the loss of their 17 year old daughter to menengitis. As I think of a sweet friend, remembering her momma who passed away almost one year ago, and the sweet reminders that God has been sending her in a tiny lavendar butterfly. Of the sickness of my husband's co-worker to the awful effects of cancer. As a mom struggles with the difficulties surrounding her adopted teenage son. And maybe it has something to do with this time of year that holds a special place in my heart...as I remember and celebrate and give thanks for each moment God has chosen to use me and grow me for his Glory alone......
A Time for Everything
1 For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.
2 A time to be born and a time to die.
A time to plant and a time to harvest.
3 A time to kill and a time to heal.
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
4 A time to cry and a time to laugh.
A time to grieve and a time to dance.
5 A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a time to turn away.
6 A time to search and a time to quit searching.
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
7 A time to tear and a time to mend.
A time to be quiet and a time to speak.
8 A time to love and a time to hate.
A time for war and a time for peace.
