All of us face changes in our lives. It's inevitable. Some changes are wonderful, like the coming of your wedding day or the arrival of a child. Some changes are difficult, like the death of a loved one or the loss of a spouse through divorce. No one plans on these latter kinds of changes, and we all hope never to face them. But when the inevitable happens, it is how we face those changes that makes the difference in finding happiness and peace in the days ahead. Right now, many of us are facing changes in our employment status. The economy is not recovering as well as we had hoped. Our family has been fortunate in keeping our current jobs, but I have a son who graduated in the spring with a Masters Degree in Public Administration who has not yet found a job in his field. And I have a close relative who is going through a painful divorce right now, and working to find a new sense of security and joy in a life that is different than she planned. Another of my children is currently in basic training in the Army, soon to be assigned to his first duty station with his young family. It is definitely a time of change for them!
For all of us who are experiencing change in our lives, here is a special design to remind us that we can thrive in adversity and find joy in the little things in life.
