Staring out of our window at the blowing leaves dancing in the yard, I started to feel the urge to write again. It's been a few days since I last wrote a personal post, and for some reason today seems to be the perfect day.
I love watching the drama of Fall unfold. This season is always bursting with change, motion, energy. The exhilarating cool air, the grating cries of the cranes as they wing their way through aerial highways, the short yet brilliant sparkle of the floating leaves, the stormy weather waiting ominously to burst upon us. It's a time to prepare for the long dark winter looming just on the horizon, a time to reflect on the warm summer drowsily coming to a close, and a time to think and ponder about life in general. And that's what I like.
I have a friend whose blog title is "Winds of Change" in which she simply posts updates from her life. How fitting! It seems the more I go through experiences in life the more I realize that the only temporal thing that doesn't change is change itself. But maybe there's a reason for that. Maybe it was planned that way to help us stay focused on what's important - the spiritual things. As I face many new changes emanating out of my future, I realize that the only safe course is to place my trust in God to see me through the midnight mine fields. I don't know what the future will hold for me. I don't know where I'll be in five years. I don't know what I'll be doing. Things could happen that I can't even imagine right now. Expect it or not, change will come!
But this thing I know: Whatever changes I experience during the next few years of my life I would not trade for ANYTHING. God has promised to be faithful, and I know His word is true! He will never change.
