I thought this version by Matthew Paul Turner of Jesus Needs New PR was beautiful.  (Plus you might enjoy his book, too.)


Seasons exists for all things, good days for every experience under God’s watch.
Days for giving birth and days for resting in peace.
Days for putting seeds in the ground and days for plucking fruit from trees.
Days for slaying dragons and days for restoring hope.
Days for punching holes in walls and days for patching walls with holes.
Days for wiping tears off cheeks and days for laughing your ass off.
Days for mourning what’s been lost and days for celebrating what’s been found.
Days for hiding your feelings and days for putting it all on the table.
Days for holding on and days for walking away.
Days for keeping hope and days for facing truth.
Days for remembering what was and days for forgetting what wasn’t.
Days for ripping apart and days for sewing seams.
Days for speaking your mind and days for shutting your mouth.
Days for making love and days for knowing what to hate.
Days for fighting good fights and days for letting opinions die and rebuilding relationships.
Seasons exists for all things, good days for every experience under God’s watch.
