My friend Collette over at Jesus Loves Mums shared this scripture today that I wanted to share with you as well.
A Time for Everything
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
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 NIV
Oh how I wish it was always a time to laugh and dance. We have had a wonderful summer and it is quickly coming to a close. In less than two weeks our older girls will be back in school. One week later their younger sister will be going to preschool a few days a week.
I love the season of life I am in right now. We have our days. . .but I feel so blessed to be a mom. The housework is overwhelming and the kids fight. But I remember the harried days of rushing around in the morning to get myself ready for work and three little ones ready for daycare. Those days were not so long ago, but they are already hard to remember. I need to put the computer away today and cherish these last moments of summer break with my girls.
I hope today is a laughing and dancing day in your house.
