Our Monday Moment: There IS a Time for Everything

“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, time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, 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 (NIV)

It happened one day …

??????????????A man of God spoke to his co-workers on Friday evening of one week but never made it to work the following Monday.  He took ill and died suddenly on the Saturday night.  Everyone was in shock.  How could this be?  And not him of all people!

Most of all, they regretted not being able to thank him for being a great friend, a committed team player and a caring, thoughtful supervisor.  It was too late.  He would never know how much they appreciated having him in their lives, never hear the words of the many tributes offered on his behalf or enjoy the rich notes of the songs which were sung at his funeral.  Continue reading Now or later?

Its night before its afternoon.
