A time for everything

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 ...

Ecclesiastes 3:1-5


He changes times and seasons; He removes kings and sets up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding ...

Daniel 2:21


And the time for capturing these was drawing to a close as the light was fading, and the flowers themselves would soon fade.

That was the scripture used last Sunday by our pastor. So glad Spring has Spring! Summer is here in our parts. Now I begin waiting for the lower humidity of fall. :D

The scripture you've quoted is one of my favorites, this one and 1 Cor. 13. The flowers look stunning, it's such a beautiful time of year. The perfect time for falling in love all over again, now to find someone to fall in love with! lol

Enjoy your weekend!
