Turn! Turn! Turn!


I love my friend Michael. Thanks to him for reminding me of this important verse from our Lord's Word:


Ecclesiastes 3

A Time for Everything

1There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven--
2A time to give birth and a time to die;

A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.

3 Atime to kill and a time to heal;

A time to tear down and a time to build up.

4A time to weep and a time to laugh;

A time to mourn and a time to dance.

5 A time to throw stones and a time to gather stones;

A time to embrace and a time to shun embracing.

6 A time to search and a time to give up as lost;

A time to keep and a time to throw away.

7 A time to tear apart and a time to sew together;

A time to be silent and a time to speak.

8 A time to love and a time to hate;

A time for war and a time for peace.
