5 Minute Friday: Change
I can feel it in the air.
Yet things are so dry here, it has been in the air for weeks.
Fall. Dry leaves. A richer shade of sun. A resumed schedule.
It brings Awana, school, a doctorate student in my house, and quite frankly a new person.
This change, a falling off of the old, and a new person emerging is hard work. Changing to allow the old habits to be swept into a pile. The old ways only led to death within me.
I am scared of this change. Of this newness emerging. It feels different. Really different.
I welcome little hands around my waist. Bringing out old clothes that are out of style. Skin that appears healthier.
I don’t know why I accept this change with a sort of begrudging grace . . . unlike the scores of other times I refused to allow the leaves to fall from my trunk.
But this season, it will be a beautiful one. A fall like no other.
