Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6 a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.


Goodbye To My Dad

Goodbye Dad, I had to say
A few months ago on a cold winter day
I*ll remember the good times and try not to be sad
But saying goodbye still hurts so bad
I miss you more then I can express
My love for you will never grow less
I keep trying to imagine how I will go on
I realize tomorrow is another dawn
I know you*re in heaven above
Looking down on us with all your love
Only to whisper in our ear
Remember that I*ll never stopped loving you dear
I*ll always remember the good times we had
Remember the man, my wonderful Dad
I*ll remember you each and every day
And if I need to talk to you, I*ll just sit down and pray
One day we*ll be together again
To talk about all the places we been
Until the time I*ll always treasure
Having you for a Dad was such a great pleasure

"He Only Takes the Best
God saw that he was getting tired,
A cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around him
and whispered, "Come with Me."
With tearful eyes, we watched him suffer,
And saw him fade away.
Although we loved him dearly,
We could not make him stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes "the best"."
