  To Everything There is a Season
 
  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.
 
  King James Bible
 
 
    "We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age." - Howard Phillips Lovecraft,1926

    THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated. Excerpt from "The Crisis" a pamphlet by Thomas Paine, 1776.

    “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.” — Revelation 21:6, King James Version

    "Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock." - Matthew 7:24, New Living Translation (©2007) thus the name: Solid Rock RV Park, Lake Leon, Tx.
