I know, I know, I know. I changed the look of the blog TWICE in 24 hours. But most of you don’t follow me that close, especially if I don’t post, which I haven’t. I will though, get back in the swing of posting. Another change.
The season is changing, so my routine may too. Or my lack of routine, may change to another lack of. We are not 100 plus anymore, just a a bit below. Clouds have been teasing us for a couple of weeks, a change. No rain though, so no change there.
Still gluten free, always will be, no change, ever, there. Always cooking a different dish every night , never the same thing 2x a week, unless it is left overs.
I went back to teaching my favorite Sunday school, Firm Foundations, a change from a change. So Sunday’s I HAVE to go to the first hour again. Got a purpose again.
I have 3 grandkids in school now and 2 in preschool. I don’t get to have a few here during the week, just to have em. I HATE this change. :(. But it is so fun to hear them all talk about their lessons, their new friends and to see them grow more everyday.
We are planning on adding some out door landscaping soon, a change. We will be working and scheduling people to work. We will have an amazing outdoor world soon
A stray showed up a while back, not really anything new. I started my usual fostering and searching for it a home, nothing new in that either. It attacked my mini horse and one of my dogs and taught my dogs some BAD behavior. I caught it, caged it, and took it to the nearest animal shelter. BIG change of heart for me!! I used to only take animals FROM ‘kill’ shelters.
One of my closest friends moved to Dallas. HUGE change. Her son gets to play football,. She will see her husband every night because he will be working in the same town they live in. Her girls will have a homeschool coop and be making many many new friends. I miss her, but what a positive change for her! We will change to be 99% text and 1 percent calling. Instead of 80% text, 15% face to face and 5% phone calls. She hates to talk on the phone. I hate to text. We will change.
Someone was trying to convince me to get back into activitiesin the church the other day, assuming the changes with the new building and the new church were the reason I had stepped away a bit. I responded with- “Change is NOT the problem the changes we had in our church were NEEDED! I like change, I change always. If things are not changing then nothing is moving or growing.” I believe this to be true.
Change is necessary. If no change is happening, then things become stagnant. Stagnant stinks. You get stuck. No change is like quicksand.
So many people refuse to change their thinking and realize eating bread at every meal is NOT necessary, gluten full or gluten free.I hear celiac diagnosed folk say ” I am just used to having my toast in the morning, it is hard to change.” Really? Toast? Doctors refuse to change and still insist positives must be seen on gluten intolerance tests (that don’t work) before a diagnosis is made for Celiac. Doctors wont change their thinking and see a gall bladder attack or lymphoma’s or skin reactions as symptoms of something else, like an autoimmune disease, like Celiac. Change is hard for some, I think because they are afraid. Afraid of stepping outside of the box. Afraid of trying something new. Afraid someone might judge them. Afraid to trust themselves. Afraid they may be wrong. Afraid they may be right.
I say change, or be very very afraid.
