I really enjoy writing . I am so weak when comes to computers and for the most part all new technology. I have to stay up on it to some degree because of my degree and profession and use fancy dancy machines in our office. Right now as I type these words , I am out of my comfort zone. I have found to my surprise a few out there enjoy my gift and here I share freely hoping these words will find their way to someone who may gather strength from them and live and labor with that hope.
I have spent many hours learning how to set up and maintain this so I could pass on and along a story when it came to mind. I have made many mistakes and have lost hours of work simply because I hit the wrong button.
About 3 weeks or so ago , I got a notice that changes were coming . The company I worked with was being bought out by a new company. I liked the old site and it was simple hence the name. It was easy for old dogs like myself.
Things have not been good and I do not like these changes at all. I am having a lot of trouble learning how to do even the basics and this is my first blog since the switch.
I saw a little jar at the counter of a pizza place a few years ago. It said ,' If your fear change leave it here.' I have thought about that many times since. Life is always causing changes. It seems it is something that will never change.
As I sit here typing in my office, our 3 year old dog ' Skyler 'is in my favorite chair. She is adored by our family and has brought us much joy. This has been a wondrful and welcome change. She is no longer a puppy. Time has changed her as well without her permission as it does with us.
She is loyal and when I turn off the light next to my computer and she hears the click, she will get up to go with me . We click and she trusts me . She will not ask me where I am going or even question why. My plans will will affect her and she will change hers to go with me. Without words, she is teaching me how I should grow and learn to go with the flow of my Lord. Savior, and Master. I find it ironic that as I try to find words to share with you, I am trying to help you grow and we cannot grow without change.
I read one time most of us give God our plans and ask Him to sign off on it. Instead , we should sign our name on the bottom of a blank sheet of paper and let him plan our day and agenda.
Nothing is permanent but change.
Even the animals- the donkey and the ox know their owner and appreciate his care, but not my people Israel.
