Moving through changes can be an exciting and joyful time in one’s life. It can also bring with it some difficulties and challenges that call for an open spirit and the willingness to be led into the new adventure, with a sense of trust in God’s plan for one’s life. Oh yes, there are choices to be made by the individual. However living in the presence of God will certainly make the decisions somewhat easier. The seasons of our lives call us to walk in many different directions praying for a loving, generous and listening heart; watched over and led by our belief in the providence of God. We gain the strength needed to move along our journey to happiness in this life and blessings for all eternity.
