There is an appointed season for everything.
And there is a time for every event under heaven—
A time to shovel and a time to for high boots;
A time to slip and a time to spread sand and salt.
A time to make snowballs and a time to make snow cream;
A time to shiver and a time for hot chocolate.
A time for frostbite and a time for long underwear;
A time to walk quickly and a time to catch snowflakes.
A time to ski to work and a time to call in sick;
A time for Static Guard and a time for Chap Stick.
A time to search for gloves and a time to give up as lost;
A time to knit scarves and a time to have a chilly neck.
A time to snowblow and a time to wait for a stiff breeze to do the job;
A time to fear wind chills and a time to bundle in courage.
A time to love the cold and a time to hate it;
A time to war against nature and a time for snow on earth.
He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart, yet so that man will not find out the winter work which God has done from the beginning even to the end.
(Apologies to Ecclesiastes 3.)
