Living in Ohio, I’ve learned to appreciate every season. That doesn’t mean I like or enjoy the cold months, but it helps me to remember that there’s a time and purpose for everything under the Heavens. 

As Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 of the King James Version writes: “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; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace”.
