On My Mind

During the past year there has been much change in my life, some good and some not so much.  Change is unsettling and scary for me but I have learned that it is essential if I want to become the person I am meant to be and create the life that is best for myself and my family.  As I get older I realize more and more that change is part of life for better or worse.  I think it is in acceptance and understanding that change is able to propel us to the next level.  As I come to grips with change I find myself thinking about the following writing from the Bible.  It seems to resonate with me on many levels.  As I was blog hopping tonight I came across this scripture in the sidebar of Straight No Chaser.  It compelled me to pause and share these thoughts.    

There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven.
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,
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.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
