Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, says this...
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
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..."
Blah blah, blah...you get it. This one goes one for a while, and for some reason I just don't feel like readin' the whole thing right now. Trust me. You'll thank me later. Anyhow...
When I DO have the time and desire to actually read this whole passage, I must say, it is one of my favorites. What a wonderful thought it is to realize that there is "a time" for everything. To know that everything eventually changes, that nothing in life ever stays exactly the same.
I don't know about you but I find great comfort in that fact. Well, when things are goin' BAD I do. When things are goin' GREAT...this is a real DRAG of a verse.
What's even weirder is when I'm havin' a day like today. Today I seem to be havin' ALL the seasons at once. It may be a medication problem. By THAT I mean, I may NEED some medication, which I DON'T have and that is a PROBLEM.
I can't seem to stay focused on...
I am so bored.
Why is everyone lookin' at me? Can't a guy have a nice, private cryin' jag in the middle of Starbucks without everybody gawkin' at him?!
I LOVE the Rifleman!
OK, I'm back. For a short time, anyhow.
Whew. This is exhausting.
The only guy I know who's had this experience in the Bible was probably the crazy, demon possessed guy. Jesus took the demons out of him and put 'em into some unsuspecting pigs who promptly threw themselves off a cliff.
I'm not suggesting I'm demon-possessed, of course. Let's just say I wouldn't be UNhappy if I suddenly came across a bunch of pigs and a cliff right now.
I think I had too much iced coffee.
Why won't these pictures load onto this blog this morning?
Gotta make my Christmas list.
Personally, I kinda like speeding through all the seasons of life in one 5 minute period. Saves time.
But makes my neck hurt.
Can't wait to see what happens next.
As together we stand and sing.
