As it is written, “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.”
And 2013 was sure a testimony to that.
We had times of joy and celebration, with birthdays and anniversaries, graduations and promotions.
Times of tearing down and times of healing. Times of gathering, and times to uproot.
We had our time to weep and time to mourn.
RIP Aunt Darlena Mettler, good friend and colleague Gabe Acosta, old family friends Jim Parsons and Dave Wyant, just to name a few.
And we gathered together and shared the good times and the bad. And God was there, helping us weather the storms and teaching us to dance in the rain.
May the Lord continue to keep you and bless you in the coming year.
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.
