time to PLANT and a time to UPROOT

Ecc 3: There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under heaven.

There is a time to plant and a time to uproot.
Planting and growing may take time; of course a tree cannot grow over night. But no matter what life may bring, growth can still take its course. Even in the most deperate places, even in the most desolate deserts, even in the most foriegn soils, something beautiful can and will grow. Uprooting comes when change occurs. When planting is all but a reminiscence. When the foriegn soils become familiar and then God decides, in His timing, that the soil is looking all too proverbial for you.
Planting and uprooting are the unexpected elements in our mysterious collage. The layers of soil and roots that compact our lives.
