Loving Change


I love change, pretty much always have. I actually don’t understand when people say they don’t like change. What could possibly be so wonderful that you want it to continue always? I loved being pregnant. I love my job. I love having a baby. I love my house. I love sleeping. But I don’t want any of this to stay the same forever. Life is so short. How can you not want to try new things and live a few different lives?
It is the existence of change that helps me love the here and now. I can treasure these late nights because they won’t be forever. I can love my husband being home full time, because I know it will only be for a season. I can focus on the good in things because I know they will change.
We will probably not always be this rich or always be this poor. So I want to enjoy this time. I will probably not always be this thin or always be this round. So I’ll enjoy this body.
I hear it so much, people saying they hate change. In the last two years, if count major life changes at the level of marriage, kids, moving, and job changes, Shah and I have had about 10 major life changes in two years. If I’ve learned one thing through all the changes it’s that God is in control.  Sure, there have been times when I wanted things to settle for a minute. But change is good, people. I don’t think we can learn things without change. I don’t think we would see God working if we couldn’t see change.
This year I’m even embracing winter and the time change because heck, without winter, how would I ever see a sunrise.
