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 throw 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 throw 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
JOY & SORROW ......both a part in all our lives. Though when the sorrow comes , I fight it, forgetting sometimes that it is part of my LIFE. Some say the better part of life. Kahlil Gibran said, Some say " joy is greater then sorry," and others say "Nay, sorrow is the greatest, But I say unto you, they are inseparable".
"Your joy is your sorrow unmasked, And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears.
This has been my life the last few months....JOY SORROW
Smiles from baby Conner(joy) , service ,prayers, love from friends and family(joy), cancer horrible cancer(sorrow), watching the love between Becky & her husband(joy), watching Becky in pain(sorrow), sitting on the porch soaking in sun, beauty,calm (joy), watching my children support each other (JOY), Its so inter mixed.
I'm trying to be thank-ful for both.
