Wedding, and funerals

Wedding and funerals.

Both are significant life events, and there is a right time for everything.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

There’s an opportune time to do things, a right time for everything on the earth:

2-8 A right time for birth and another for death,
A right time to plant and another to reap,
A right time to kill and another to heal,
A right time to destroy and another to construct,
A right time to cry and another to laugh,
A right time to lament and another to cheer,
A right time to make love and another to abstain,
A right time to embrace and another to part,
A right time to search and another to count your losses,
A right time to hold on and another to let go,
A right time to rip out and another to mend,
A right time to shut up and another to speak up,
A right time to love and another to hate,
A right time to wage war and another to make peace.

Why is it that weddings and funerals always seem to come in threes?  In the first three months of this year, we attended many funerals and a wedding of a very good friend.  Memories of all will be forever with us.
