On a Day Like Today

 It's been a trying "winter" for our family.  
Yet, our chins are up and our hearts are strong.  
Winter has a purpose and we don't want to miss it.  
On a day like today, even though the temperature is 
still cold and the wind is brisk, we bundle up.  
We head outside to feel the warm sunshine on our faces.  
 I then think to myself, "Be patient... spring is coming."


For everything there is a season,
a time for every activity under heaven.
A time to be born and a time to die.
A time to plant and a time to harvest.
A time to kill and a time to heal.
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to cry and a time to laugh.
A time to grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a time to turn away.
A time to search and a time to quit searching.
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to tear and a time to mend.
A time to be quiet 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 NLT
