things happen that just throw you more than a little off balance.
yesterday was one of those days.
* my car brooke down (starter motor, which is all fixed now)
* my computer decided to do a minor freak out
* my mum calls to tell me that one of my horses jumped a couple of fences, ended up on the road, being hit by a car and killed.
and i wonder how long she lay on the side of the road? did she die immediately? was the person driving speeding? could they have missed her?
i am grateful that no one was hurt, but gutted. heartbroken. shattered. puffy eyed. super sensitive. shocked. so sad that she's been burried somewhere else, and i won't be there. and now... racooned eyed once more.
I know it doesn't compare to the pain that so many other's are experiencing, but it makes you realise how it's all such an individual thing, and so relative to each person.
Yeah... great day.
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stone and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace......
God has made everything beautiful in its time.
