"Uplifting the broken one heart at a time."

What time is it?

"There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under Heaven--A time to give birth and a time to die; a time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted. A time to kill and a time to heal; a time to tear down and a time to build up. A time to weep and a time to laugh; a time to mourn and a time to dance. A time to throw stones and a time to gather stones; a time to embrace and a time to shun embracing. A time to search and a time to give up as lost; a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear apart and a time to sew together, a time to be silent 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


Each one of us come from different places in life. Some may be just starting families or falling in love, yet others may be coming from a place of brokenness and emptiness. In the past few years I have gone from being a working mother to being an empty nester and then a grandmother. I then became a wife and stepmother. Each season of my life has brought many different challenges. I will admit that at times I didn't always embrace each season with joy. God tells us that there is a time for everything. At the time we may not understand why things are happening but God does know. He promises to be with us. For me right now, my season is to be an encourager and secondary caregiver. I'm not sure what will be my next station in life but I do know that whatever the season is, I want to do what God wants me to and be ready to do whatever He says.

  1. Kathy,
    At times, it can be difficult to embrace change. It sounds like you have had plenty of changes in the last few years, but with your faith and attitude, all will be well. He never said it was going to be easy, that I know from personal experience. Time....
