Hey friends, how are you today? Just today, how are you doing? In fact, right this very minute…how are you? Right now, I feel fine and I am excellent. Spotify has placed my favorite songs for 2020 in one spot and I think these are still my favorite, so far in 2021. This week has been absolutely crazy in our household with college preparations. One would think that because this isn’t our first rodeo, we would be cool, calm and collected by now. But unfortunately, this isn’t us; I am 99.9% sure something will still have to be mailed because it was left behind (accidentally of course). I’ve said it a thousand times, everything needed for school, please leave in your rooms, but still there are college paraphernalia all over the house. So, inevitably something will be forgotten. Anyway, that’s how I’m doing; go ahead and tell me how you’re doing, and we will commiserate together.
Of the four seasons, winter is my least favorite. I love the outdoors, well… not outdoors…OUTDOORS, (like camping under the stars, nope, not for me, I know everyone has to die at some point, but I’d prefer not to be eaten), but I do enjoy nature. Winter makes nature walks and outdoors a tad bit uncomfortable. But I do enjoy winter though. I love the crisp, white snow, I enjoy the absolute silence that the snow brings with it. I enjoy the swirling of the snow as it falls gently to the ground. I do think snow is the best thing about winter. Lately though, winter, in our neck of the woods, has been milder than the previous years and so far, just our ‘scary’ trees are all we have to show that winter is here. In retrospect, I don’t mind the milder temperatures, it reminds me that change is coming.
Change is inevitable and unavoidable, and also necessary in this world, we live. Because I don’t usually like change, I have to ensure that my foundation is ‘sure’ (get it?). My source of strength and my shelter must be steady and unmovable and secure. Huh! I know exactly what to do and where to go for that! I go to my Rock, my Savior, Jesus Christ and I stay in His Word.
How are you doing? Where will you go when change comes?
