E is for Ecclesiastes 3

Me, alone. Life after loss.

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 
A time to be born, and a time to die ~ Ecclesiastes 3:1,2

"A time to every purpose," as I read this I find comfort and I know that creating a new life for myself is indeed a beautiful thing. Not always easy, but meaningful and good. 

"A time to be born, and a time to die," also brings comfort in the perspective it brings on living and dying. Though Errol was not really old at 68, he lived a long life. Those of us who live into our sixties and seventies and beyond have been given a precious gift, I think. And thinking on this Bible verse helped me.
