It is the changing of life that reminds us we are still living. It is the changes that sometimes make me the most sad.
I am sad and happy in the same moment. Sad for the changes I do not like and happy for the changes that will
make others more at peace. It is important to be aware of how others feel and embrace their emotions. Only
God knows the ending to the story–we must live trusting that the best is yet to come. I praise you, Lord, for your
wisdom and love. You alone, Lord, are all-knowing. May we always be followers of you in what we choose
and in what we accept. Life is full and glorious, and I thank you for the people you bring into our lives to touch
us and make us better for knowing them. Thank you for such grace. May we make others’ lives better for
having been a part of their lives, too. And may we continue to grow in your grace. Amen.
