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

2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

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

7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

A passage I often think of............thanks Bro. Levi......

Our lives are separated by "seasons" are they not?

And, sadly, or maybe gladly, ours has reached that early Winter season............well, mine has anyhoo

The Apostle talked about how he was conflicted between staying here, or going home to the Father........

In God's time, we will all leave this world............I only pray we choose the right path home......

Yes, we are an odd lot, perhaps peculiar is a better word. I have learned this over time from myself, paying attention.

Something demonstrating just how peculiar I am has occurred these past few years.

Most of my life I have loved winter and spring……..but lately my appreciationn has truned to Autumn and I do look forward to it……..There is a glorious end to winter coming, and I do so look forward to it…….not trying to make a lot of sense here, but Paul did say it, and older believers of Jesus, Yeshua, understand it well.

Levi,
I was exiting when i found this, for you=). Do you speak Tamil? I worked with a Tamil student at a music institute many years ago, a very friendly and helpful person.

(boy, I know this could be taken wrong, but)

Isn't it odd how almost everyone reads this Passage of Scriptures and understands it, yet when it is applied to CERTAIN things, they go bonkers about it?

Like how the First Covenant.........had a "season?"

:)

( just saying )

you're so very precious PR - all covenants are just a continuing bonding, they are simply an add-on;
they, like you, are very precious and are just another way that He has made to bring us closer
into Himself...
