: Update on "Change" :

So yesterday morning I was at my women's bible study group at my church and one of the speakers spoke about her word for the year and how it's affected her year thus far...I thought it might be a great idea to sit down and review what my word of the year has contributed to my life and to reflect on what it will look like for the next few months.

My word was/is "Change"
v. changed, chang·ing, chang·es
v.tr.1.
a. To cause to be different: change the spelling of a word.
b. To give a completely different form or appearance to; transform:

First I know that my word change has caused relationships to change, this has been a tough road. By choices I have made {some good, some bad} caused changes in relationships also good ones and bad ones, but changes non the less. Bottom line is there has been change and these changes have all been with God's help and guidance and for that I am SO thankful.

There are the most obvious things like us selling our home, moving into my parents suite and finding the perfect house that God wanted us to have {all of these things have been great unknowns...when will we sell? where will we move? will we have a house to move into?}. And yet all of these things have come to pass and have changed in the past 9 months and have too been guided by God.

Another thing that has changed has been the boys school, we had originally registered Jacob and Cole in a Christian school that was at the time the perfect choice. But as time passed and our housing situation became less and less sure, we pulled them out of that school. Just to have the spot still available for Cole in his original Preschool class and to have Jacob signed up for his new school in our neighbourhood {4 days prior to school starting} and having him placed in the most desired teachers class...the perfect teacher for Jacob! God's plan far beyond our dreams of perfection! This change was a little nerve wracking but when God had taken care of every other detail, we just knew this change would work out just fine and it has!

Thus far all of our changes have the same common thread, peace.

Yes there are moments of unknown with change but what a boring life that would be {or simple - HA!} if we didn't have change! Honestly with Christ in our lives even with feeling uncertain and not seeing what the future holds, we have been blessed and had peace beyond measure. And so I'm learning to embrace change ;)

..I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.....

I'm off to do more packing today {of our suite} -- we're moving tomorrow so I've got my work cut out for me! Have a great last day of Summer {HA!} and get ready to embrace Fall {YIPPEEE!}

Much Love!
