I love these books, her words___they soothe the soul and express what I would love to say myself, and glad of what I believe, and glean as being so.
“There seems to be a time for everything____a creative time when we begin to build something new____a time of order when we put everything in its right place____a time of sadness when laughing is at one end and crying at the other playing yo-yo with the emotions____There is a time when the pendulum of faith swings high and in its full swing also finds the lows___there is a time when amiability and agreement are light and easy____and a time when there is no neutral ground on which to work___a time for sheer happiness so that nothing is accomplished except on dancing feet____and a time when the spirit is so submerged in the God everywhere present, that a lack of courage would be impossible.”
“Life has so much more beauty than unpleasantness that we cannot ignore the comet’s tail____the meteor flashing across a star-studded sky___a cool breeze carrying the fragrance of honey suckle___the early dawn misty pink and golden___a sweet sleep full of quiet breathing and happy dreams___the sun’s golden tanning___the salt air’s tangy breath___and every man’s (and woman’s) faith that takes him nearer to God and love.”
“We cannot forget the opportunity, the time of challenge__the moment of truth, the discovery of a new self we have not known___the fear that can melt away with a little courage___the aching with love for the hurt of someone else____the miracle baby___a rippling brook, the singing trees___There is a purpose to everything under heaven___for He has made everything beautiful in its time.” From To Everything, There Is A Season, Joyce Hifler.
We look to the beautiful skies, as we think about our purpose here. That all there is, and of what we see____Must be made by a great creator, how else could it all be? There is more to it all. And much to learn. So much more to who we are!
