Words to Live By

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 rend, 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

I think I'm in the time-to-cast-away part, trying to get rid of stuff. Not very successful so far (: Have a blessed Sunday.

Our high school principal used to quote that scripture to us all the time. It is a thought provoking writing for sure. That photo is awesome.

I especially love the photo with the trees wrapping around the earth. Perhaps this is how God sees His creation too!
