A time to mourn

Ecclesiastes 3:1-4, A Time for Everything

There is a time for everything,
And a season for every activity under heaven:

A time to be born and a time to die
A time to plant and a time to uproot,
A time to kill and a time to heal,
A time to tear down and a time to build,
A time to weep and a time to laugh,
A time to mourn and a time to dance...

I can't wai for my time! Don't really know what I am waiting for, but I can't wait for it!

Being in my little emo-state at the moment! This post made me cry!

BUT it is beautiful! It is a reminder that "seasons come to pass" and we mourn but we heal!

Hi Jules,
Ecclesiastes was a wise old fellow...he asked a lot of deep questions and got no replies, he couldn't find the answers, so he decided to live life simply, by the seasons, to love and to work, to play and to rest...

Happy Days

You scared me! I thought, who died! Your pet, your car...oh yea! Memorial Day! Boy am I off the calendar. Beautiful photo. Are you going to the cemetary tomorrow? I'll be thinking of you and sending good thoughts your way. Was talking to someone at mass today about no more goodbyes in heaven, and how our loved ones will be there with us. Hope this is comforting. xxoo Deb

This IS my favorite verse! I hope someone loves me enough to have it on my stone!
