Sunday Sayings . . .


Accepting Change . . .



The winds of change blow through our life, sometimes gently,

sometimes like a tropical storm. Yes, we have resting places -

time to adjust to another level of living, time to get our balance,

time to enjoy the rewards. We have time to catch our breath.


But change is inevitable, and desirable.


Sometimes, when the winds of change begin to rustle, we're

not certain the change is for the better. We may call it stress

or a temporary condition, certain we'll be restored to normal.

Sometimes, we resist. We tuck our head down and buck the

wind, hoping that things will quickly calm down, get back to the

way things were. Is it possible we're being prepared for a new

"normal"?


Change will sweep through our life, as needed, to take us where

we're going. We can trust that our Higher Power (God) has a

plan in mind, even when we don't know where the changes are

leading.


We can trust that the change taking place is good. The winds

will take us where we need to go.



~ From "The Language of Letting Go" by Melody Beattie

Thank you so much for visiting my blog! I have a feeling you know of me through Lavender Dreamer as her smiling face is just across from my words! What a lovely and lighthearted blog you have!

Yep, the only thing we can be sure of in life is change, death and taxes. Not particularly in that order. Do you know I've tried numerous times to visit you, put you in Google, etc., and never could get to you blog? I don't know what the problem was. But Ms. Lavender Dreamer paved the way smoothly, so here I am!
