"To everything there is a season..."

The tiny body of a dead Red billed Quelea, and the lush new plant growth reminded me of this verses in Ecclesiastes, 3: 1 - 2.

"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven;


A time to be born, and a time to die;
 
 
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; "
 
 
And then verse 19,  ''For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth the beasts; even one thing befalleth them; as one dieth so dieth the other; yea they all have one breath; so that man hath no pre-eminence above a beast; for all is vanity".  Authorised King James version.

I like that section of scripture and have gone to it and quoted it many times.
