2 A right time for birth and another for death, A right time to plant and another to reap,
3 A right time to kill and another to heal, A right time to destroy and another to construct,
4 A right time to cry and another to laugh, A right time to lament and another to cheer,
5 A right time to make love and another to abstain, A right time to embrace and another to part,
6 A right time to search and another to count your losses, A right time to hold on and another to let go,
7 A right time to rip out and another to mend, A right time to shut up and another to speak up,
8 A right time to love and another to hate, A right time to wage war and another to make peace.
Living life has it’s highs and it’s lows. I prefer the highs of life, the lows not so much.
It is easy to allow myself to wallow in self-pity. To cry out that the whole world is against me.
Just as the seasons of the year passes from spring to weather so is the seasons of our life.
So, here I am again having to remind myself about the portion of Scripture that tells me to expect this roller coaster of seasons.
