Some things never change, like:
Uncle Fred and Aunt Betty, Mom’s chocolate cake and Jesus.
“Every good and perfect gift is from above coming down from the Father of Heavenly lights, who DOES NOT CHANGE like shifting shadows.” James 1:17
Its really good to have things in your life that stay the same. There are other things, no doubt, that stay the same that don’t make me nearly as happy. As a matter of fact there are many things in my life that seem to never change and I’m pretty disappointed about it! However, today I am thankful for some things that are constants in my life.
Like Uncle Fred and Aunt Betty. My mom’s brother and sister-in-law have always be constants. They look the same, talk the same, love the same, encourage the same. Same smile, same stories, same hug, same kiss. Unchanging in my life. Anchors of hope.
Mom’s chocolate cake. Another sure thing. Each bite tastes the same, I know what I’m getting with each slice of goodness. Its been in my life since the day I was born and each time I can count on it to satisfy. Never changes. My cakes, often change, much like shifting sand…moms, not so much, mostly always the same and with each tender morsel comes security.
Jesus….never changes, ever, never, not once. Always counted on and always comes through. God knows the plans He has for me and those plans NEVER change. No matter what I do or don’t do…God still has the plan. All things are possible with my Jesus. Not some things, or half the things but all things. All.
Thankful today for things that never change.
