Wow, I cannot believe it has been February since I have made a blog entry. I guess I'm a bad blogger! It's hard to believe that the last time I blogged it was winter. Since then we have had a scorching hot and dry summer ,and now are in the middle of my favorite season, autumn! I love all the colors of fall and the changing of the weather.

Speaking of change.....where do I begin? I have had so many changes in my life in the past 2 months.I thought my major change this year would be my son graduating from high school. While this was new territory little did I know what was just around the corner. In July we found out that my husband would be appointed pastor of a new church in another town about an hour away. Although this was our hometown, we have been gone for several years. Not only did this mean a new church family, but it also meant a new house, a new job, new schools for the kids, and a new routine for everyone. It seems that I have had very little free time with all of the unpacking and settling that takes place with a move.

I sat down the other day and was thinking about all of the changes and how everything was different. Don't get me wrong, I know that God orchestrated this change in our lives, but we all like our comfort zones. Change is hard. But, I began to think about how God never changes. Malachi 3:6 says, "For I am the LORD, I do not change. That is so comforting to me knowing, that in the midst of ALL of life's changes, God--who is in control of EVERYTHING--never changes. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. As I look back over my life, He has been in control and has always sustained me even in the times of uncertainty and change.

Another favorite scripture of mine is Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowlege him and He will direct thy paths. As I reflect on these scriptures, I know that God who has never changed, will guide me through all of the change and seasons of my life.

Praying for God's blessings on all my old and new friends and family.
