There is a time


There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:

    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 from embracing,
    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

It is sad but also in a way joyful that the Lord has taken my dad home! He is with HIM and can be whole again. I am grateful for God’s timing as my dad wanted to go.

It has been a hard time and I can say that it did/does make me stronger. You can love someone but you also need to let go.

Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But there’s a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see.  – Helen Keller …..so it will be for my dad.

Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them. – George Elliot

I know this is not my usual positive smiley post but happy positive people also feel sadness and grief.
I will be a bit quiet for a little while but I will be back to bloggingworld as you, my bloggerfriends  encourage me, make me strong , share love and understanding and give me so much happiness.
Thank you all!
