Noticing the Change
That intoxicating bright and new green of spring…oh my goodness, it is just fantastic.
I was driving home a few days ago, as I was driving I was noticing the bright green of spring erupting all around me…it is impossible not to notice the colors, the sounds right now...the flowers, the blossoms, the leaves, the birds…everything is bursting back to life at once, you can practically see the change happening all around us in this area right now…stare at a tree for long enough and you’ll see the leaves get bigger and brighter while looking at it.
I was thinking about that change as I drove home. Right now, at this moment in our world around us, the change is impossible to miss. It’s in our faces, it’s there, there’s no getting away from it.
But, my friends, in the middle of the summer, when the leaves on the trees are darker and heavier, change is still occurring, it’s still happening…it’s just more subtle, harder to notice, slower…but it’s still happening.
Sometimes when we have areas we need to change in our lives it's easy to get excited in the beginning when we can tangibly see the change happening, when it’s impossible not to notice, when it’s easy to see…but if you’re anything like me, we can get discouraged when we are in the middle of needed change and it feels like it’s ground to a halt. It hasn’t, change is still happening, just at a slower pace, in a more subtle way.
My dear friends, whether you are in the beginning of change, or if you feel like change has ground to a halt, I hope you can see and feel the good work you are doing, and you can be encouraged that change is happening even if you don’t feel it.
Have an amazing week, my friends.
