Wednesday means it's time for another Word Art Wednesday challenge. This week our verse is Hebrews 13:8, "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day and for ever." There's a (very true) saying that states, "Life is change." We've really seen that this week as we've moved my mother-in-law to an assisted living center. She's been living with us for the past two months as we've waited for her apartment to be ready. As she's transitioned from living in her own apartment, to living with us to now living in her assisted living apartment, her life has been FULL of changes. Yet, I've realized over and over, that she's handled these changes with grace and acceptance because she's learned the truth of our verse this week. Her world may have changed drastically but the Lord she loves, serves and depends on has never and will never change. He's been there to provide comfort and strength in the past and will continue to do the same as she adjusts to her new surroundings. That doesn't mean all this has been easy for her because these types of adjustments never are. It's just that she can rest in the knowledge that the Lord is in control and will be there to help her each step of the way. I've heard her say several times that she knows this move is of the Lord and He's directing the events of her life. I hope if I'm ever in her situation, I'll show the same grace and trust that she is showing to all of us now.
Crafty Tip: I apparently press too hard when using a scoring board because I've ruined the tips of more than one bone folder. I recently switched to using a metal stylus and like it so much better. So, if your bone folder tip is showing wear, why not give a stylus a try?
