…God has shown His goodness to me and my family.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-13 (English Standard Version)
A Time for Everything
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 cast 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 cast 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.
What gain has the worker from his toil? I have seen the business that God has given to the children of man to be busy with. He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end. I perceived that there is nothing better for them than to be joyful and to do good as long as they live; also that everyone should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil—this is God’s gift to man.

Amen & Amen….hasn’t He in all of our lives.
Love that clock… and how you use the picture to apply to the verses.
And I’ve been thinking all week about your comment about ‘choosing joy’.
And what a beautiful gift that is! Thank you Ellen.
That was so timely, for me, Ellen. I’ve just blogged about our anniversary (in a round-about sort of way) and of course the verses you’ve presented were the very ones we read at our wedding.
