Sunday Blessing: A Time for Everything

My blessing for this week comes from the Bible. This has been a crazy summer for my family. A roller coaster of highs and lows. My emotions are raw, and these verses remind me of the common bonds we all share. There truly is, a time for everything. There is nothing that I am experiencing that someone before me has not. There is comfort in the unity of the universal truths of life, death, tears, laughter, war and peace. I am not alone. You are not alone. May we rest in this truth.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

A Time for Everything

1 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:

2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,

3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,

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

5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,

6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,

7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,

8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
