Happy Friday, my friends!

These Fridays roll around faster and faster is seems. With them come Five Minute Fridays, where many of us come together to let our hearts, minds, and hands go free on a one-word prompt. We share it all at Kate Moutaung’s place. Check it out and be encouraged. And why not join us? If you don’t have a blog, by all means, write your five minutes in my comments below. I’d love to encourage you in your writing too! Don’t be concerned about grammar, punctuation, etc. Just go and have fun with this. I certainly do.

This weeks’ word:




I think of the wordΒ CHANGE, and words like






come to mind.

It’s been a week of that around here.

Scratch that. It’s been a year of that around here.

changeOur son started his senior year of high school this week. Our daughter found direction in her career path. (The excitement in her voice, telling me all about it last night is something I haven’t heard in awhile!) Bill and I are making positive changes in our health. My schedule is being adjusted this week. And I changed the look of my blog home (see the full effects here) this week.

Change? It seems normal anymore.

But God’s at work, and I can tell because it’s been a little uncomfortable. He’s stretching us. Growing us. Molding us for greater things. Change is exciting. But it can also be unnerving and scary too. Am I right??

I’m excited to see the big picture someday of what God is up to. I see just pieces of it now, fitting together little by little like a puzzle. It’s going to be a beautiful masterpiece once all the pieces are put together. I just wish I had the box top to see what the finished picture is going to look like.

In the meantime, we’ll keep our eyes fixed on the One who sees the finished picture.

I encourage you to do the same. I don’t know what changes you’re going through, but God does. His plan, His box top, is bigger, more beautiful, more complete than what it may seem right now. Trust Him my friend. He’s making a masterpiece!


It’s a gift to me that you’re here. I’m lifting you in prayer today as you navigate through change. Keep your eyes on Him, friend! He’s got this!

Hugs and prayers,
