Five Minute Friday: Change


It's Friday. It's another five minutes of free writing with Lisa-Jo Baker.



Change.


I'm not really a fan, but you'd never believe it, if you know me.  That's because the only thing constant in my world, change.

And I learned early on that change can make or break your spirit. 
When the Daddy leaves home for good.
When the job is re-org'd.
When the house is foreclosed on.
When the doggy dies.
When the body is altered permanently for life's sake.
When the kids you prayed for- really become yours.
When the home grows and the family multiplies.

When the relationships you treasure and the church you called home nearly two decades changes-
your spirit can break,  Or not.

I don't like change, but I refuse to let it break me.

Change- is good!
