To Every Thing There Is A Season







1
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:


2
a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;


3
a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;


4
a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;


5
a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;


6
a time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;


7
a time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;


8
a time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
Ecclesiastes 3

Cheryl, thank you so much. I didn't know if this was something I should post or not, but then I thought, "Hey! This is my blog! I can post anything I want." All kidding aside, I have been feeling very much lately with the changing of the seasons the ebb and flow of life and these verses just keep running through my head.

Rose said...

Perfect sentiments for any time, but especially in autumn as we realize the days are getting shorter and the beauty of summer is fading away. Sometimes I find winter depressing, but without it I don't think I would feel as much joy as I do in the coming of spring.

I know what you mean, Rose. I always think of this when we do our Fall chores, putting the gardens to bed for their winter slumber and everything awakens so fresh and new in the spring.

Wendy said...

I think Rose expressed it perfectly. I don't have anything more to add - except I'm glad you posted it. It is your blog and you post what you want to. I sometimes get that way too. Should I post this or not? And when I do - there is a reason for it. People comment and we all learn.
Thank you for sharing. I loved that little lizard!

Wendy, thanks for your support. It's good to know it speaks to others too.

I love the lizards too. They becomes easier to photograph as the weather cools. They are not as quick and are more prone to just sun themselves on the window ledges, to my kitty-cats delight. Tucker (one of my inside cats) has been so excited watching the lizards and squirrels he falls out of the window. He is as much fun to watch as the wildlife outside.

Lovely post! I am not sure how old you are and if you would remember the Bird's song Turn, Turn, Turn, but that verse was in the song, great pics also!

Kylee,
Oh yes! I am old enough to remember the Byrds! Turn, turn, turn was my favorite song by them, which may account why I had those verses running through my head so much! LOL! And thanks for the compliments on my pics--I think my favorite is of the lizard.

I remember Peter, Paul and Mary doing that song, waaaaaaay back. Lovely words.

Marnie, See there? I learn something new every day! I did not know that Peter, Paul, and Mary had done Turn,Turn,Turn. But I am not surprised. It sounds like "their" kind of song.

Cielo, thank you for your wonderfully sweet words of encouragement.

MG, I think that is why some songs stick wih us-their words mirror our lives. Yes you can post what you want! I like to think of all of us sitting around with a good cup of coffee and having a gab session-virtually of course.:0

Eve said...

What a beautiful way to illustrate that lovely passage of scripture.
I think, even people who do not believe in the Bible, can appreciate the poetry of those words.

The only hope that we find, Dear Lord, is in you.

Thanks Beckie, I love to have a cup of coffee and a virtual gab session! I started my blog to keep family (especially my mom) up-to-date with our lives and my garden. It has turned out to be so much more than that! I feel like my family has grown by leaps and bounds to include all of you that I have met through blogging, and I feel so blessed by it!

Morning Glories in Round Rock said...

Eve, thank you for your thoughts. You always express so beautifully what I am feeling.

Lydia said...
