Change is inevitable with every year our lives change. This year we saw our daughter marry and have her first-born. I remember being deeply in love with my husband and the night he proposed and yet this was 34 years ago. Oh how I have changed! When I look in the mirror I can still see that girl who said yes! All though life changes our outer being the inner being still feels young without boundaries. It is only when I am playing with my children I realize that the shell is getting older.
Age is not always a welcome visitor. Vanity of what and who we perceive who we are changes with each passing year. I guess that is why we need to focus on who we are today. Today I am a better person because I have accepted I cannot do this life without Christ. This was the best change I made. I will forever be thankful for accepting Jesus as my savior and my sister-in-law and best friend Lorie who was there who prayed with me as I accepted Jesus. Embracing this change has been a lot like to evolution of me going from a young woman to the older woman I am today.
When we decide to accept and be thankful for what God has done in our lives it becomes really fun to see where that change will take me. I am set apart in the body of Christ. But being set aside does not mean that the challenges and changes I will embrace will always be fully understood at the time of these changes. We have to open our hearts up to what God has in store. So Embrace change today
