Do you remember when I called myself a sentimental old fool? And, I talked about the many years I had walked the dirt road to see my grandmother. This is what I remember, and this is what it all looked like just a year ago.
I still walk the dirt road, but it has changed. The girls and I went for a walk this evening. This is what it looks like now.
But, I can still enjoy my time with the girls. I avoided the road for weeks after the trees were cut. I wouldn't even look in that direction when I passed.
But, this evening, after supper, with the weather soooo perfect for the beginning of our spring break, the girls and I took a walk.
And I thought about the day I took this photo.
Then we went to the pond and fed the fish. We haven't done that for months. Ellie was delighted when the fish came to the surface to eat the food we were "flinging" into the pond.
Today, as I was enjoying the spring temperatures, I thought about how I liked the change in the weather. I puzzled myself, knowing that I don't like change....until I realized the change is seasons is predictable. It's the repeating of the familiar, which really isn't change at all. And, while there have been many changes in our lives lately, I'm so glad I can cling to this:
The grass withers, the flowers fade, but the word of our Lord stands forever. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He's the never changing Rock of My Salvation. To sit with Him is familiar territory. I'm so glad some things NEVER change.
