It's so nice when things are cozy, stable, easy and one day flows nicely into the next. Then something changes the scene. It does not matter what it might be but something I am finding and is coming more easily these days is change.

It's like I let go of the sail, the rutter, the boom, the ropes. I am realizing that in the big picture change really does not matter to much. I have always been a go with the flow and add some fun along the way. But secretly I don't like change, I don't like giving in and and giving up.

But then I realize so easily, even surprising myself, how much freedom there is in letting go. These are just some fleeting thoughts this morning. We are around the corner from some big changes. Changes that David has wanted to make for a few months and I was not there. I am there now and together we are working for a better future for our family. In the letting go I see how God just says..."thanks took you long enough".

So, as the weeks unfold please pray as we make some major decisions. Decisions which will require a lot from me. What is really cool about letting go of the ropes is that you get to still be in the boat and be carried. Love and Blessings to all.


  1. What a wonderful entry Elizabeth. It is nice to know that others struggle with the same thing that I do. I will enjoy watching what that Lord has planned for you. I am sure you will go through it with your usual grace. Now if only I could do that! I am so blessed by what you share with us. Thank you for being so honest and allowing us to be a part of your journey. Much love and prayers to you all.

  2. I'm with you; change is hard, and I'm not a go with the flow gal AT ALL! Still and yet, the older I get and the closer I walk with the Lord, the more freedom I've known with the changes in my life.

    I think both age and wisdom have a lot to do with this. Some people never get there; but as we grow in our relationship with the Lord, we gain understanding. We can't help ourselves. To know Christ is to know more, rest more, find lasting contentment more.

    When we refuse the continuing walk of grace, that is when we get bogged down by the changes in our lives.

    We're moving on friend; this life is but a breath. Walk it like you mean it, changes and all, and don't be surprised when God surprises you with his Peace.

    PS: Now I'm curious. Email if you want.

  3. Change is never easy but when it's God it turns out to be the right thing. I will pray for you as you navigate through the changes coming up. Be at peace my friend.

  4. Its all about surrendering.....such a hard thing to do. But when we do, we find that its much easier than we thought.
    Such a paradox, hey!
