A Time for Everything



Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

(New Living Translation)

For everything there is a season,

A time for every activity under heaven.

A time to be born and a time to die.

A time to plant and a time to harvest.

A time to kill and a time to heal.

A time to tear down and a time to build up

A time to cry and a time to laugh.

A time to grieve and a time to dance.

A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones.

A time to embrace and a time to turn away

A time to search and a time to quit searching

A time to keep and a time to throw away.

A time to tear and a time to mend.

A time to be quiet and a time to speak

A time to love and a time to hate

A time for war and a time for peace.

New Living Translation

I’ve Been Made

I’ve been maid
And I’ve been made.

I’ve been stayed
And I’ve been staid.

Some words God
will never speak.
(no matter how hard you listen)

Beauty can both
shout and whisper
(Still it says nothing)

You are you
and will always be you.
(made by Him)

“Some words God will never speak
no matter how hard you listen,”….

“Beauty can both shout and whisper.
Still it says nothing.
You are you and will always be you.”

"Let's see what this icon does"

“Let’s see what this icon does”

With one finger tip I can:
Scroll and move between items
Use a slider
Select items.

With two finger tips I can:
Zoom in to or zoom out from the screen
Move items from one place to another
Minimize apps and show your Active Frames
View the Hub
Show the menus
Show the keyboard
Navigating within an app

With my whole hand I can:
Hide an iPhone
snap a selfie
see my pix
speak to Siri
learn letters
phone my folks
stay in touch…


Things That make Me Happy

sunny window sill

Walking tall and walking free,
Seeing through and waiting ’til;
Hearing well and opening up,
Speaking true and Spirit’s will.

Seeing through and waiting ’til
All’s revealed beyond the sill:
Daylight’s brilliance cast at will.

Hearing well and opening up,
Truth be rattled: tea be read:
Secrets told; mysteries wed.

Speaking true and Spirit’s will
From within: be quiet “whim”!
In the light, illusions thin.
