Weekend Word: A Season

Friday, May 25, 2012

Welcome to the weekend where we welcome summer. I'm thinking a lot about seasons these days. As with any thought that lingers, it is helpful to go the Bible, and see what God has to say. Often, it is the most familiar passages that shed new light, even if they do get a certain song stuck in your brain. (And doggone it, Forrest Gump always gets me all teary.)

There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

  1. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving the kind comments! I'm glad to meet you and find this place.  There is a time for everything so true.  I'm so aware of the seasons of life these days as a care for elderly parents, including one who has Alzheimer's, and I am trying to live moment by moment and grasp all that God has for me along the way!  

  2. What a good reminder and love the picture with these verses they go so perfectly.
