Day 15-Bible Verse

This one is a challenge. I am not a bible person. I am not a godly person. I am not a religious person. The only time that I have ever read part of the bible was in a class in college called Women in the bible and it was only the Old Testament.  So I decided to look up some bible verses.....not pleased with the google result of the search "empowering female bible verses."  They were all about how to be a subservient wife.  So then I decided that my 30 day blog challenge would end here.

My dad called, who is a devout follower of my blog and much more religious than I, and he mentioned the song "Turn Turn Turn" by the Byrds.  I like it.  Thanks Dad.

Ecclesiastes 3:1

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill , and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace

I guess something in the bible does make sense to me and I can relate to it.  But honestly is it a popular song from 1965 that I listened to when I was little....not a verse from the Old Testament.
