SPONSOR: hbkcpa.com/consultants/richard-c-morrow/ Jn 10:27: Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.
Whoever originated the phrase: "Change is good" wasn't all that happy in the first place, know what I'm sayin', y'all?
'Cause I'm here to tell you; that line has been oversold for centuries, a'ight?
Look, I acknowledge that change is the only constant in life. I get it.
And I also acquiesce that to be a functioning human on the third rock, you really must be adaptable to it. I don't know, it felt like an acquiesce moment, sue me.
But, is change, in fact, ALWAYS good? Um, nah; at least, not on the surface.
Sometimes, it involves removal of the physical presence of another homosapien of whom you are quite fond. This can be temporary or more of a long-standing situation.
-Maybe your kids moved away to college...or out of state to start a career. Someone remove knife from heart, please? Can't breathe.
-Maybe your best friend moved to Florida. Monthly order of tissues placed; thanks, Amazon.
-Maybe your parents retirement-relocated to Arizona. I know I'm all grown up but there are days when is still need me Mum and Pop. Okay fine, everyday.
-Maybe you decided to leave a job you've been in for 22 years to start something new...like, the company you've always wanted to own. TERROR TIMES TEN THOUSAND...fear of the unknown, even when it's your choice, is REAL, people.
-Maybe time, tragedy or illness stole someone you adore from this big round ball. Words fail; we're never ready to say goodbye to a loved one.
-Being strong, independent, well-adjusted and happy IS what we want for the offspring.
-Your pals and your folks have EVERY right to sunshine every day; they're good peeps, after all.
-The courage to jump headlong into a new adventure might be scary but it's also mega-exciting and spilling over with potential.
-This globe is just one part of the story; we all know there's a much better place up there with OPEN signs in every window, every day. A bright, beautiful, happy spot where it's warm and welcoming all the time, travel is FREE and there are eternal visiting hours, you dig?
So, while I don't always love change as much as, say, a big bowl of homemade gnocchi, it does always open the door on a lesson...if you let it. And it's sure a terrific opportunity to stop, reflect, appreciate, be in the moment, breathe and pray, Capisce? #LifeIsAGift #LoveEveryDay #Pray
