Last Post for 2008 - To Every Thing There is a Season, Ecclesiastes 3. 1-8

Well, today is New Year's Eve - a time to reflect on events that happened this year with opportunities to make New Year Resolutions. Drawing from these verses in Ecclesiastes, I find comfort. Comfort in God's Grace, Mercy and His Sovereignty.

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 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.

Wishing You a Blessed New Year.
