There is a Time

3:1 ¶ For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:

 2 a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;

 3 a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

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

 5 a time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

 6 a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to throw away;

 7 a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

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

 9 What gain have the workers from their toil?

 10 I have seen the business that God has given to everyone to be busy with.

 11 ¶ He has made everything suitable for its time; moreover he has put a sense of past and future into their minds, yet they cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.

 12 I know that there is nothing better for them than to be happy and enjoy themselves as long as they live;

 13 moreover, it is God’s gift that all should eat and drink and take pleasure in all their toil.

 14 I know that whatever God does endures forever; nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it; God has done this, so that all should stand in awe before him.

(Ecclesiastes 3 – The Holy Bible)
