Most of you who are 40-ish and up, or maybe even if you are a child of a Baby Boomer and heard their 8-tracks growing up, have probably heard the song by the Byrds â€œTurn! Turn! Turn!â€.
But did you know they took their lyrics straight out of the Bible?
See for yourself what Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 has to say:
There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven–
A time to give birth and a time to die;
A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.
A time to kill and a time to heal;
A time to tear 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 throw stones and a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace and a time to shun embracing.
A time to search and a time to give up as lost;
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to tear apart and a time to sew together;
A time to be silent and a time to speak.
A time to love and a time to hate;
A time for war and a time for peace.
I guess my version today would be there is a time for using the free Blogger service and a time to move up and pay for your own blog.
Last night I stayed up late and got a hosting account set up with A Small Orange. For some reason I had the urge to keep my site in state and everything Iâ€™ve been able to find out about these guys says their customer service is second to none.
That means Iâ€™ll be moving the blog over to a new domain this weekend, and learning a new blogging platform with WordPress with all the challenges that entails.
Oh, and did I mention that Iâ€™m first on call this weekend at work? So itâ€™s going to be Sleep Deprivation City for me, baby!
All I can say is Bring it ON!
Whereâ€™s my coffee?
