To Everything There Is A Season

My Nanna
15th July 1907 - 1st July 2009



To everything..............there is a season


A time for every purpose under the sun.


A time to be born and a time to die


A time to sow and a time to reap


A time to kill and a time to heal


A time to weep and a time to laugh


A time to mourn and a time to dance



A time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing


A Time to lose and a time to seek



A time to rend and a time to sew



A time to keep silent and a time to speak



A time to love and a time to hate



A time for war and a time for peace








Now.... it is my time to mourn..............I hope that soon it will be my time for peace.

Your grandmother has touched the lives of many. Her inspirational stories have been heard, through you, by thousands of listeners like myself, on the radio, and read by all those who have followed your life-changing story with interest on your website and blog. Thank you for enriching my life...
Her life is to be celebrated...
Mourn and may your sorrow pass in the knowledge that her spirit lives on in what you say, write and do.
