In the words of The Byrds

I'm not a bird watcher, nor a Byrd listener, in the strict sense of being "a listener". But I do like this song, and mostly because it's almost a direct quote from scripture:-
To everything - turn, turn, turn... There is a season - turn, turn, turn... And a time for every purpose under heaven... A time to be born, a time to die... A time to plant, a time to reap... A time to kill, a time to heal... A time to laugh, a time to weep.. To everything - turn, turn,turn... There is a season...
And I believe those words are taken from Ecclesiastes 3
How exciting that we get to be witnesses of the God of creation, in even the change of seasons and the birth of a beautiful baby boy. My friend Chantell gave birth to their son last night. What a miracle that little boy is. I don't think we can quite grasp the enormity of a new life joining us on planet earth. It is so life-changing and thrilling and awe-inspiring. This is our time to rejoice.
I am so grateful that I get to share in the lives of people who are so blessed of God. I'm also blessed, but in other ways. And for that I am grateful. My time of weeping has passed. No more woe-is-me anymore.
It is a new season. One where I put God back on His throne in my life. And where I sing along with The Byrds at the top of my lungs.
