There’s a saying in our parts.
If you don’t like the weather wait 5 minutes.
It will change.
Spring time in Alberta is a fickle creature.
One minute the warm sun is shining and the next it’s over cast and snowing.
In the course of a week we can go from -30 with the wind chill to +14.
I wish I was kidding.
If you were to take a peak in my front closet You would find our winter boots lined up next to our sneakers.
Spring jackets hung up in between parka. It’s seriously that ridiculous.
How do you even figure out what you’re supposed to wear in the course of the day if the weather can fluctuate that drastically?
It’s finally starting to feel like spring.
The nights are getting longer and the sun is finally greeting us we get up in the morning.
The disappearing snow has revealed ugly brown grass and trash that has blown in over the last few months.
Change is in the air and I am desperately trying to embrace it.
There is a lot more changing than just the weather….
I feel like I am changing too.
I’ve been posting less often but that doesn’t mean I have less to say.
Real life is always more exciting than what you see online anyways.
We have been busy living life.
We’ve seen some movies, had dinner with friends and officially eaten more popcorn than recommended I’m sure.
Sometimes life gets a little busy in a good way.
I mentioned before that my husband and I are changing the way our family does life together.
We added meal time devotions and after a few awkward meals together it has fast become a family favorite.
God has been changing our priorities so they line up with his.
He’s been opening our eyes and our ears to the things he wants for us.
It’s excising and scary all at the same time.
He has changed who we were in the last chapter of our lives to what he wants us to be in this chapter of our lives.
I’m not the same person I was a year ago for sure.
Sometimes the winds of change blow unexpectedly bringing a refreshing where you didn’t even realize you were dry.
So far God has taught me:
-to trust him for he is trustworthy.
– He is giving me ears to hear.
-a change in focus changes everything.
-God speaks in the mundane. Ordinary often the disguise of the Divine.
– He works all things together for my good.
-today difficulties are the result from yesterday’s disobedience so obey him today .
– you will never grown if you don’t spend time in His word.
-I need a “God margin” in my life. The space in my life between my resources and the goal he has for my life.
-behavior does not determine identity
So even when I’m ankle deep in missing socks God is with me.
