September 1, 2013 Leave a comment

For everything there is a SEASON, and a time for every MATTER under heaven:

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 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. Read more…
