As Seasons Change

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:

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,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

What do workers gain from their toil? I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race. He has made everything beautiful in its time.
He has also set eternity in the human heart;
yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-11

I pray that whatever season of the heart you are in, that your eyes would be opened to the fingerprints of our eternal and loving Creator. May He reveal beauty to you in new and exciting ways, and where there is ugly, may you have eternal sight to see the unfathomable ways God is moving and molding.

~Happy, Wonderful, Blessed Fall to Beautiful You~

Thank you for inspiring us to find beauty, God's beauty, even if we see a few ugly spots. He will make everything beautiful in His perfect timing! Hooray!

Lovely photo, too. :)

I love the part of that verse that says, "He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end."

The mystery of God in one verse. haha
The concept of time just blows my mind.

Love this post and the picture! :-)
