Did You Know That There is a Season for Everything?

To remind you of this timeless wisdom, we invite you to read the famous poem from Ecclesiastes 3.

To everything there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

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 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;

A time to get, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

A time to rend, 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 of war, and a time of peace.

Life Seems So Empty


All I do is cry lot of tears.
So glad to have know you for twenty-one years.
I loved you from the very start.
I hated that on that date you had to part.
I know that you are an angel in the sky.
I keep saying to myself why did you have to die?
I never thought that we would be apart.
You are still and will always be in my heart.
I look at the sky and see the pretty blue.
I feel so blessed to have known you.
God had the right to pick and choose.
I was the one to really lose.
When God made you he gave me the best.
When he called you home you were laid to rest.
I know you wish you were here with Jatice.
But instead you are in that great place with peace.
