A Time For Everything
There are tears of joy that flow with ease
and tears of grief that flood the soul...
good times pass by like a breeze
and gusts of pain can take their toll.
moments to relish fond memories
or ones that trigger nightmares...
glorious times of jubilee
and hours of deep despair.
seasons in life come and go
they never do stand still...
but we can learn and grow
by trusting in God's will.
why not give thanks each day
while enjoying the ride,
not wasting hours away
before we turn around
life will pass us by,
and we will face eternity
in a blink of an eye!
