There is a time for everything!

March 19, 2009

   There is a time for everything,
       and everything on earth has its special season.
   There is a time to be born
       and a time to die. 
   There is a time to plant
       and a time to pull up plants.
   There is a time to kill
       and a time to heal.
   There is a time to destroy
       and a time to build.
   There is a time to cry
       and a time to laugh. 
   There is a time to be sad
       and a time to dance.
   There is a time to throw away stones
       and a time to gather them.
   There is a time to hug
       and a time not to hug.
   There is a time to look for something
       and a time to stop looking for it. 
   There is a time to keep things
       and a time to throw things away.
   There is a time to tear apart
       and a time to sew together.
   There is a time to be silent
       and a time to speak.
   There is a time to love
       and a time to hate.
   There is a time for war
       and a time for peace

…hearts full of evil

November 8, 2008

I’ve been  thinking about the ugliness that I have seen this week since the historic event that took place November 4  here in  the United States of America.  These thoughts have sometimes kept me up at night.  Barack Obama has been elected as our new president.  I have heard terrible things being said about a man who has not yet taken office.  It has caused my heart to ache to see the bigotry that had been hidden and cloaked in garments of niceness and tolerance. Now the big event has uncovered the true nature of some.  Hate speak abounds.  Nothing is held back.  The  feelings of the heart are being exposed.  It has made me sick.   I searched for answers in the Holy scriptures.  King Solomon offered an explanation in the 9th book of Ecclesiastes verse 3.  This explanation has calmed my spirit and brought understanding.

“This is an evil among all things that are done under the sun, that there is one event unto all:  yea, also the heart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live, and after that they go to the dead.”

Hearts full of evil and madness. The only explanation that has brought definition to what I have seen and heard. I want to be a child of God.  I want my heart to be filled with love and understanding.  Creator God please help me.

Just thinking……….
