Sunday Serenity


To everything there is a season,
a time for every purpose under the sun.
A time to be born and a time to die;
a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
a time to kill and a time to heal ...
a time to weep and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn and a time to dance ...
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to lose and a time to seek;
a time to rend and a time to sew;
a time to keep silent 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

Not a religious statement on my part - 
Just a passage I feel resonates so very well for all of  humanity.

Blessings, Aunt Margie!

  5. That is also my favorite passage and the one I used for my husband's memorial service. Because, as you said--it DOES resonate so very well for all of humanity, and it touches me in a profound way. I loved reading it here this morning.

    Thanks to memories, you will always have Aunt Margie with you!
