To Everything There Is a Season - Inday Blanco's 40th Day Memorial

It's over forty days now since Inday Blanco passed away, and following tradition, her family and friends celebrated a memorial Mass and said prayers. The Philippine belief is that on the fortieth day her soul has gone on to heaven.

Inday's passing and world events have reminded me of  the song, Turn, Turn, Turn, which uses the verses from Ecclesiastes. The words are beautiful; the song is also beautiful. Peace be with you today, dear Readers.

Ecclesiastes 3 King James Version

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 that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
The pictures are the first pages of the Memorial Book for Inday Blanco created by her friends in  Cebu. The body of the book is filled with pictures of Inday and her family and friends.
