This past weekend I had a funeral and a wedding to go to. Both on the same day, one after the other.
I couldn’t help thinking about this scripture.
“For everything there is a season,
at time for every activity under heaven…
A time to cry and a time to laugh.
A time to grieve and a time to dance.”
This Saturday, first it was a time to cry.
A time to mourn with my friend as she said good bye to her husband here on this earth.
Later that same day, it was a time to laugh and rejoice with a young couple filled with the hope of their future together.
One married couple parted by death and the other joined in marriage.
Life is designed to give us many different opportunities and experiences.
Some of them we cheerfully welcome with open arms. While others seem to be forced upon us unwilling.
Through it all, God is always there to hold and comfort us in our time of need and to rejoice with us in our time of joy.
We can face every season with faith, knowing that God has said that each season has its place and purpose.
What ever season you find yourself in today…
May you be filled with the beautiful presence of God and every good and perfect gift He has for you.
