28 Times: 5-8

I wrote a guest post for jeffspeakstolife.org

Jeff speaks to life.

Ecclesiastes 3:4

A time to kill,
And a time to heal;
A time to break down,
And a time to build up;

I am Stephanie (Nonie) from nonietalks.com. I was asked to take this verse and write a guest post for Jeff’s look into Ecclesiastes 3.
