To every thing there is a season

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 up 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.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

We should remember that all things are in God's timing, and there is a time for all things. This is a passage special to my heart because it was read at my mother's funeral after her passing seven years ago today. It was her time to go, even though I wasn't finished with her.  But, it has more meaning than that because it's so true in all ways and can be applied in many areas of our lives.

Today as we take our little girl to another doctor to hopefully get some answers about why she's not walking, it will probably a time of more weeping, but also a time of building up - of our strength, knowledge, and love.

God's timing is perfect. And, in all things HE should get the glory.
