3:1 For everything there is a fixed time, and a time for every business under the sun.
3:2 A time for birth and a time for death; a time for planting and a time for uprooting;
3:3 A time to put to death and a time to make well; a time for pulling down and a time for building up;
3:4 A time for weeping and a time for laughing; a time for sorrow and a time for dancing;
3:5 A time to take stones away and a time to get stones together; a time for kissing and a time to keep from kissing;
3:6 A time for search and a time for loss; a time to keep and a time to give away;
3:7 A time for undoing and a time for stitching; a time for keeping quiet and a time for talk;
3:8 A time for love and a time for hate; a time for war and a time for peace.
That's my excuse for my letting go to grief and sadness yesterday. I can't fight it. If I let go to it, the next season comes all the quicker. If I fight it, I lose, but the battle may take days. I have learned to give in to sorrow, and when it is spent, look at what I have gained instead of what I have lost. Knowing Elizabeth has definitely been more gain than loss. Plus, there is a saint in heaven right now who holds me in her affection. How cool is that?
I know we have heard this song a thousand and one times, but I love to listen to it on days of renewal....
