wisdom

Coming from one of the books of the bible that I read the least is a few verses that I think are one of the wisest words that has ever been said or heard. I think about this verse not necassarily often but at least once a season. This can be an easy or even obnoxious answer to life's problems and difficulties but for some reason when I speak it to myself I seem to always find comfort. It's also a kick butt song no matter how hokey it may seem.

Ecclesiastes 3
A Time for Everything

1 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:

2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,

3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,

4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,

5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,

6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,

7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,

8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
