I had a lot of time to think about things this weekend and a scripture kept coming to mind so I will share it with you.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die: a time to plant, and a time to pluck that which 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 cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, 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 of war, and a time of peace.
This helped me figure a few things out and helped put things into perspective.
Most of all I figured out that right NOW is where I need to be to learn the lessons that I need to learn.

I love this.

I also realize that when we surrender to the timing of things--truly surrender--and are at peace with it--truly at peace--is when the time and season change.

This is what I know for sure.

This can get very deep and spiritual in the Universal and Heavenly scheme of things. But, I think you understand.

I am glad you are feeling better. The scripture you posted is one of my favorites. It always strikes at my core whenever I read it. I am glad you shared it. It is interesting that you posted this scripture in reference to your "funk" moment. Because as I was thinking about my own "funk" moments, I realized a lot of them happen when I am trying to change the things I don't have control over. I think this scripture teaches us that "LIFE" is bigger than us. Everything gets its time to exist; and there is a purpose and a reason for it. Whether we understand its purpose or not it still happens. "Funk" moments are not fun; I am glad you are feeling better. :)
