To Everything There is a Season

Solomon said to everything there is a season. The passage I am speaking about is found in the third chapter of Ecclesiastes. Days follow one after another, and as I get older, they seem to be picking up speed; but this is the day that we focus on starting a New Year. It seems such a short time ago that we changed centuries. Solomon describes times of great joy and great sorrow, and times of building and times of tearing down. The awesome joy of a birth, followed by the terrible lament of a death. Beginnings and ends, to everything there is a season. I have experienced both the painful loss of my father, and the joy of welcoming a niece and a nephew. I try to make the things that I loved about him to be true about me; especially when I am around the little ones.
One thing that I do know is that time continues to press on, and there will be times of great joy and times of great sadness. So if you want a goal to shoot for this New Year: make the things that you loved best about those who have gone on to their reward, true about you. God bless you and keep you in this New Year.
