It seems like the past few months I have been pushed from places of being comfortable to places totally out of my comfort zone. We have been attending a church closer to home with our children, I have changed doctors..those are two of the biggest changes. I was in an ER this last weekend with bleeding from an endoscopy and back to another hospital a few days later to have another endoscopy..both places that were new to me. Change. Maybe it's because I am getting older, they say older people don't do well with change. Older people???? Another change..but in my head I am still 18 with the,"girls just want to have fun attitude". I still want to have fun, I just want to sit still doing it!

God is always at work changing us. We should never get comfortable anywhere. We have to adapt where He places us and trust Him in new surroundings and circumstances. I have been married to the same man 40 years, lived in the same house for 39 and have had the same best friend for 45 years. See, why change might be hard? LOL

In an ever changing world, the Lord who is unchanging, is my rock of stability... I want change in my life, but I only want the changes that God allows or desires of me.

So many of you have such big changes in your lives...mine are minimal. And for that I am thankful. The only change that comes easy for me is...changing my mind. (:

I just wanted to let you all know I am still here...things going on with doctors and such...I get a bunch of biopsy reports back on my stomach next Thursday..any little prayer would be so appreciated.

Have blessed weekend!

This is such a good post~ very true with all of us I think. Change is hard. I am glad I can now pray for you. I will pray for all the biopsy reports and for your peace of mind in the coming days. My surgery is on Tuesday....but I will be praying every day til then. God bless and keep you in His firm grip.

I can relate to this post so very well. My mind seems young but the body is falling apart. Also the previous post about sitting at the feet of Jesus. You are such and inspiration. You are in my prayers.
He most definitely reigns.

This is so true, Patty. I have been out of my comfort zone so much in the last couple of years. I just don't like it, but I know God has a purpose in it and is working all things after the counsel of His own will.

I just checked in here and learned about your biopsies, etc. So thankful they came out fine. My internet has been really sporadic for the last couple weeks, as was our phone line (we have dialup) so I hardly visited any blogs.

Thanks for this post... so inspiring, as usual.

God bless,
