For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
a time to tear, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time for war, and a time for peace.
(Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 ESV)
Most of you will recognize these words from either Ecclesiastes 3 or from a song on the Forrest Gump soundtrack (I know, sung by The Byrds). Right now, this Wednesday morning, our family is in the middle of two times. Yesterday was the time to take our finals and be done with this spring semester! Saturday is the time to celebrate our friends' graduation! A time to do work ... a time to party. Thus, these next few days will be our time to ... mulch our flower beds, clean the house, shop for food, hang Christmas lights, and attend to every other last minute detail necessary for hosting 100 people. Thus, I apologize, but this week I am not sure that there is going to be much time to blog.
Hope to see you in a week!
