Two of my favorite activities are writing and reading the Bible, not necessarily in that order. Yet, in striving for order at home, holidays, lots of company over, a new housemate and those demands, a ministry about to embark, and regular activities, the writing and Bible time have flown to the wayside.
No writing, no blogging accomplished. Little Bible reading, less peace. Eating in excess, plus adding junk foods in, less energy and less of a feeling of well-being.
Tonight, I’ve determined to set a new nighttime routine so I get better rest. So, this will be a small blog, but Praise God, at least it’s being done. I miss reading others’ blogs when I don’t blog. I wonder how they’re doing, what they’re learning. I miss researching for my blog. I like to learn.
I enjoy the holidays and I really enjoy it when they’re over!
Ecclesiastes tells us in A Time for Everything that:
Ecc 3:1 For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
Ecc 3:2 a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
Ecc 3:3 a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
Ecc 3:4 a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
Ecc 3:5 a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
Ecc 3:6 a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
Ecc 3:7 a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
Ecc 3:8 a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.
Those verses were from the NKJV of the Bible. I remember a song based on those verses from the 1960’s sung by The Byrds and written by Pete Seeger in the late 1950’s.
May God bless you!
