My Beautiful Struggle + this too shall pass

it's time

There is a time for everything,

and a season for every activity under the heavens.

There is a time for sleep And a time for Ferberizing

A time for staying out past 7 And a time for becoming Family Video's best customers

A time for fashion And a time for sweatpants

There is a time to drive an Accord And a time for the minivan

A time of being heard And a time of repeating yourself. Repeatedly.

There is a time for cleanliness And a time for poop.

Everywhere, the poop.

There is a time for a quiet house And a time for giggles to fill the halls. A time for kisses and snuggles, a time for holding hands across the street.

[God] has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God. I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that people will fear him.
