To Every Thing, There is a Season

So for family scriptures last night I asked Freddy what scripture he was ponderizing. He didn't have one. So I asked him what he wanted.  He thought and picked up some bean bags and said that he wants to juggle. At first, I didn't thing any scripture applied. The I thought of this one.
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 a 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.
(Ecclesiastes 3:1-8)
There is a time to juggle and a time to refrain from juggling. This morning I thought of this song. It reminds me of this passage.
