Change is one of those words that can produce a variety of emotions right in the heart of us.

We Skype with our daughter and son-in-law every Sunday. They live far away - across a vast ocean. It's wonderful to be able to see them, but the real star of the show is our new little grandson. We first met him as a newborn, cradled in his Mama's arms, tiny and curly-haired. As one week folds into another we see the change in him. He has gone from a sleepily little bundle to a wide-eyed little cherub - looking right back at us through the screen. Sweet, miraculous change.

There are those changes that come with the tick of the clock - the phone call late at night, the knock at the door, the sudden, violent storm. In a moment the world shifts and life is no longer the same.

A change of our own choosing - a new home, a new job, a marriage, a birth - the kind of change we like. It adds a something special to our lives - as long as it goes according to plan…

I'm over at Laced With Grace today with the rest of this devotional. Come join me!
