I caught a glimpse of you

from some recess of memory

When I woke up, I knew

It was a dream

I am in the middle of reading From Beginning to End by Robert Fulghum. A very nice read if you ask me. It’s about the meaningful and spiritual journeys we take in our lives. Some of them may be painful for us to recall, some may be full of joys shared with our loved ones, some may be full of challenges and hardships,  but always in the end, it’s the comforting rituals of our lives that get us through them all.

How do you greet each morning when you wake up? Do you start it with a prayer like I do? Or do you spend a few moments just watching the day unfolds?  Do you welcome the day with gladness in your heart? Do you celebrate each day with anticipation? Are you thankful for another day of blessing?

I love to share with you the lovely Bible quotes from Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8.  Over the years, these quotes kept  me grounded and inspired.

For everything there is a season,

And a time and purpose for every matter under heaven:

a time to be born, and a time to die;

     a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;

     a time to kill, and a time to heal;

     a time to weep, and a time to laugh;

     a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

     a time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;

     a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

     a time to seek, and a time to lose;

     a time to keep, and a time to throw away;

     a time to tear, and a time to sew;

     a time to keep silent, and a time to speak;

     a time to love, and a time to hate;

     a time for war, and a time for peace.

          For everything there is a season,

          And a time and purpose for every matter under heaven.
