it is that time again

some of us know it for sure; some don't

a time when nothing has taste

a sluggish time

when you are unconvinced that life's sum adds up to making sense

a time to withdraw

but the seasoned know better times will come

i know this for three reasons, maybe four

there is a time for every thing; that's one

the psalmist says, "i will yet praise God"; that's two

when this time first came years ago, the Egglestons said, "you'll be better again"; that's three

in withdrawing, God is still there, that's four

so long as He makes sense, that's all


Ecclesiastes 3.4 A time to weep, And a time to laugh; A time to mourn, And a time to dance;

Psalm 42.5 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him for the help of His countenance.

"Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning." Psalm 30:5
