Time

everything has 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 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 seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast 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 ESV
For every thing… there is a season…
even a time to bloom…

He timed camellias to bloom… 
in the dead of winter…
when nothing else does…
I see them out my window… and smile…
What season are you in…?
joyful…? mournful…?
busy…? restful…?
Are you planting…? or digging up…?
building…? or tearing down…?
Is it a season to hold tight…? or let go…?
to seek what was lost…? or let it be…?
Whatever season you find yourself in…
whatever you love… or hate… about this season…
remember… it has a time…
then it will pass…
Father God… thank You for seasons… their timing… their passing…
help me to see You in each and every season… and trust Your timing…
for its passing…
