Changes

this is the post where I get all philosophical - just fair warning...

Lately there have been so many changes in my life.
Some good, some bad.


The good is that I continue to grow in my Faith. I am relying and depending on God to get me through all this change, and honestly that feels pretty darn good. I feel at peace with all that is going on around me that is totally out of my control. I realize what I can control is how I react to situations and that I have to remain true to who I am.  I am doing just that and it really feels good to be me and look at myself in the mirror each morning knowing that I am certainly not perfect, but my imperfection is what makes me ME!

Some of the bad things that are changing in life....losing people I care about...friends, family and acquaintances. Some have been from dying and some have been through other means.  I have felt hurt and sad over some of the situations, but again, I know it is only making me stronger. Plus, it makes room in my life for more of the good, more of the positive, and more of the people who care about me for who I am...the me: unplugged! :) 


I think we get a little complacent in our life situations, whether it be home, family, work, or church and I suppose God has to shake things up to get our attention and get us back on the road forward instead of wandering off kicking rocks in the ditch. I admit I am a little scared, but a little excited at what God has in store for me. I know I have to be patient - these things happen at just the right time.


Change is always so hard, but as cliche as it sounds, change can be good! I am trying to learn to embrace it or at least take it for what it is and learn to adapt.

I have sat here and stared at the comment box for 5 minutes trying to figure out what to say...

Thank you for being so honest, in what you are feeling, and how you are getting through. It takes a strong woman to open herself up like that.

The year you are having, is much like mine was last year. I can remember be on my knees and fervently telling God that this time it was too much. That I couldn't do it by myself, and that was when I remembered I didn't have to. I had to let God help me. It is amazing how quickly things improved from that point. Not the situations, but how I handled them.

It sounds as though you already know all of this though. :)

Thinking and praying for you.

I"m so sorry for all of the sad...I hope you'll feel comforted today at all the right times.

Love you friend!

This is really encouraging for me to read. It's comforting to know that someone else can go through the same thing and come out with the realization that God is taking care of us both.

My prayers are with you, sweet Kim.

What a great post Kim! Thanks!!! (I guess I need a reminder sometimes, to tell me that being ME is good...)

Kim, this was very nice and straight from your kind heart.
They say change is good, but I'm starting to seriously doubt that philosophy.
Hugs to you.
