A New Year Reflection:

There’s a time to give and a time to receive:

a time to breathe in and a time to breathe out
• a time to wake up and a time to go to sleep
• a time to speed up and a time to stop
• a time to speak and a time to listen
• a time to be active and a time to be still
• a time to give gifts and a time to accept them
• a time to help and a time to be helped
• a time to be strong and a time to be vulnerable
• a time to cook a meal and a time to eat what others prepare
• a time to stand strong and a time to let go
• a time to read and a time to reflect
• a time to tell a joke and a time to laugh at another’s
• a time to reach out and a time to draw back
• a time to feed creatures and a time to simply enjoy them
• a time to give away and a time to gather back
• a time to extend kindness and a time to embrace it
• a time to hold and a time to be held
• a time to love and a time to be loved
