Life Cycle

“Whatever has happened before will happen again. What ever has been done before will be done again. There is nothing new under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 1:9

Have you ever noticed how cyclical your life is? I sure have.

For every door that closes, another one opens.

After every high, comes a low.

“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18

In other words, when opposites attract, essentially they’re biologically coming together to combine genes and create the perfect offspring. An interesting theory…
