Winds Of Change
I’ve been absent from blogging for a bit. Life has taken me many directions – sometimes several at the same time.Autumn winds have blown and most of the leaves on our big tree are gone now. There is a chill in the air and snow has begun to cover the mountains. Change has come to our family, too. A few weeks ago my sweetheart’s company cut the hours of their employees. While we are adjusting to the changes that decision brings, we are happy that he still has a job. This means my sweetheart has an extra day off work now – a three-day weekend. And it means we have a chance to do a bit of catch-up on things left undone far too long.My dear, little mother’s health has changed during the last few weeks. Her heart is slowing down and changes need to be made in her daily life. We are exploring options for her living arrangements and continued well-being. Tomorrow morning I will take her for further tests to see how her heart is functioning. Your prayers are appreciated.During times of change we are confident that God is with us. He said He will never leave us or forsake us. Whatever happens, we are confident we won’t face the future alone. We know Who holds the future – and we know Who holds our hand.
