For everything there is a season

For everything there is a season



 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 , 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
