Change is something I’ve always had a hard time accepting. When I was younger, I hated when something (even really small) was different. Well as I got older, I realized that change is inevitable. Recently, I’ve experienced the biggest change yet-my grandpa passing away. My grandma on that side passed away in 2011 and while that was a huge change, we still had a Daudys to go to. Now, there won’t ever be a Daudys on that side again. Never again will I be able to eat one of my mommy’s church cookies or play dominoes with my daudy. It’s hard to believe that the wheat harvest this past June was the last wheat harvest we’ll ever have with him. We all kinda knew this because we knew he had cancer but it’s still hard to believe. When I was younger, I thought I’d stay like that forever. It seemed like I would NEVER grow up and everything was gonna stay the same. I was so wrong. I know I’m not “grown-up” yet but it seems like every year goes faster then the last one. I often wish that I could go back to the time when I was 8 and my biggest worry was getting out of bed on time for school. But it’s like my best friend said, “You can’t live in the past! You have to move forward. It’s called life.” And I guess she’s right. But you know what’s cool? Even though there is always something changing, there’s One who never will. Hebrews 13:8 says: “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” So even with times constantly changing, loosing loved ones, growing up…etc. We have this promise. Which will NEVER change.
I hope you have a great day and remember to live life to the fullest. ;)
