The thing that stayed with me the most after seeing The Grinch was the little girl, Cindy Lou. Her confusion at growing up and at change were what held my attention till the end of the movie and even after. Yes, Jim Carey outdid himself and yes, all the other characters were beautiful but it was that little girl and her struggle to understand the change going on around her and in her that has stayed with me even up until now. I must have been 13 then. I remember thinking to myself  "I know what she is going through".

I love change. I embrace it, engineer it even. But when it does come, i find that most times i am not as prepared as i thought i was and i start longing for the way things used to be. The good news is that it soon passes. But for those days where i am still stuck in the past, its a roller coaster ride of emotions and sometimes i lose a little of myself to the past that i am clinging to.

Change is here again. This change however isn't like all the others. Then again it isn't very different. I do not know what lies at the end. I am not even sure of its beginning. I have placed my hands in His. I will let Him take the lead in this one.

And yes, the roller coaster ride has begun. Bear with me.

Have a great week people.

  1. Change- embrace it. Just close your eyes and enjoy the ride, after all I'm sure you trust the driver.

  2. Well i hate change...but what can one do eh?!

  3. @Dolly...you are M.I.A everywhere...sigh, we should gist soon...

    but then again imagine how sad and lackluster life would be without change...

  4. "I am not even sure of its beginning. I have placed my hands in His. I will let Him take the lead in this one."

    That's the right thing to do Kiah. Check out His word, 2 Tim 1:12; "...for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day."

    It is well

  5. I know just how you feel. Its the kind of stomach knotting, forehead sweat producing, how-what-if I-should I, change that is so dreaded, but often needed.

    The Lord is your strength.
