…a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance… -Ecclesiastes 3:4
Everything we experience, the good, the bad, the painful or glad, prepares us for whatever comes next. None can escape inevitable sorrows or suffering, but so too, none are kept forever from the joy and pleasures that can be ours in an instant. While there is a time for all things, God is not bound by hours and neither are we. In times of pain, we can still find laughter. During the darkest night, the faintest star can bring hope and comfort. From the most sorrowful song, the most beautiful dance can be born.
We are given time for life. How we choose to live it is totally up to us.
