We have a changed porch view. We’ve gotten a new travel trailer. Just part of the changes in our lives, mine in particular. I had problems with the extra steps in the 5th wheel, so we downsized to a shorter (by 8 feet) travel trailer. We also didn’t need the larger storage capacity of the 5th wheel, because we don’t have to carry all we own with us. Some will remain in the house.
We cancelled our work on 2 projects due to my health issues, and traveled here with plans to set up our new house and head to ID for the June/July project. I received physical therapy for my back and knee, but things took longer than expected, plus another fall lengthened my recovery. As a result of the change, we got to experience the epic rains of Texas. At one point our new house was surrounded by water, but none of it entered the house or the shed, which sits much lower. I have been through a few hurricanes, but they don’t last for the month that Texas had rain. It was so wonderful to see blue sky and sun again! Unfortunately lives were lost and others were changed forever with these rains and storms.
Change. Change can be good or bad, depending on the person and how it is handled, in addition to what the change itself entails. It can be hard, though. There is no denying that. I used to vigorously resist change (some would say I still do). Many people do. Maybe it’s my older years, but I feel my deepening relationship with Christ helps me experience change a little easier. Jesus asks for change in our lives. He expects it of us. No, I’m not saying that I always enjoy change. It depends on what the change is. I just find it a little easier to experience with the help of Jesus Christ, and that is such a good thing. 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NASB): Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.
If you haven’t already experienced the change of accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, please seriously consider making that change. It will be the best change of your life!
