“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1)
A time to be born…
A time for dirty diapers and a time for toothless smiles.
A time to roll over and a time to fall off the bed.
A time to try solid food and a time to spit it out.
A time to sit up and a time to slip down the couch.
A time to crawl and a time to pick the tiniest speck off the floor.
A time to stand up and a time to sit back down with a bump.
A time to hold on to something and a time to pull it down.
A time to play with a brother and a time to make him wail.
A time to cry and a time to laugh.
A time to gobble something up and a time to gurgle it out.
A time to hold close and a time to let go.
…And a time to be dedicated unto the Lord.
~ Inspired by Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
