    A Time for Everything

    There is a time for everything,

    and a season for every activity under the heavens:

    a time to be born and a time to die,

    a time to plant and a time to uproot,

    a time to kill and a time to heal,

    a time to tear down and a time to build,

    a time to weep and a time to laugh,

    a time to mourn and a time to dance,

    a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,

    a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,

    a time to search and a time to give up,

    a time to keep and a time to throw away,

    a time to tear and a time to mend,

    a time to be silent and a time to speak,

    a time to love and a time to hate,

    a time for war and a time for peace.

    Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

    August 21, 1966—January 20, 2012

    I am sure there will be photos and tributes, a celebration of life, when we speak farewells to Monica Zeleske Hampton Lietzke. This morning, I paged through old photo albums in a search for memories as she was when I knew her best to find her as a eautiful child, scenes on the farm with my children, chasing chickens, fondling cats, climbing trees, but the things that come to mind are not in any book, her winning ways, her sudden smile, the anguished cry when that red folding picnic table collapsed, breaking her wrist. She grew up and away, and with her father, my brother, no longer close in her life, I saw little of her, but I know her trauma and pain suffered on this earth is banished now in this perfect place where we all long to go.
