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 throw 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 throw 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.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

Verses to live by.... Indeed everything has its own timing. For those who are non-believers of the holy bible can even attest to this. For catholics, like me, everything that happens in our lives, happened for a reason. Most of the time we pray to ask God for something and most of the time it is given to us at the right time and right place. Things and events even takes place spontaneously because it is bound to happen and we have no control over it. Just like love, no matter how hard you tried to find love, if it isn't yet meant to be, it's unlikely to last. But, even if you are not looking for love and for some incomprehensible reasons it will just come and find a home in your heart.
