A Time for Everything


If you are just now joining us, perhaps you would like to start at the beginning.  Click here for PART 1, PART 2, or     PART 3.  I recommend at least one box of Kleenex.

It is much more difficult to write this next segment than I thought it would be.  I mean we’re just talking about the plague, right!?

No.

We are talking about so much more than a little girl who got a century old, black death and God’s retribution illness.  We are talking about God’s mercy and how he uses everything, even something as old as the bubonic plague, to draw our gaze back to Him– the One who loves us.

No one has seen these photos until now.  These pictures were taken the day we picnicked at Cimmarona Campground.  The day she contracted the bubonic plague.

Sierra smiling proud. The squirrel she was so concerned about burying and poked at with a stick is to the left of that fallen tree.

Tired from a day of exploring! Me and Sierra’s sisters resting before we head back to the truck.

No raspberries to be found! Tiarra crossing over Cimmarona Creek.

Brainna takes a moment to stop and smell the flowers.

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.

What do workers gain from their toil?  I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race.  He has made everything beautiful in its time.  Ecclesiastes 3: 1-9

This isn’t part 4, but it will be ready… in its time.

Bless you.
