Thanksgiving is a week into the past and we are firmly planted in the season of Advent. Time just keeps marching on – doesn’t it? We did our annual Christmas tree cutting near Hampton, MN. I tend to like things to stay the same; particularly good things like cutting Christmas trees with my kids. But as you can see below change happens whether I like it or not.
I have nearly fifty years of change in my rearview mirror but I also have that same amount of time with an unchanging Savior. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. He was and is and will be my King and my Friend. He is the Alpha and the Omega.
So, I may not be able to return to 1998 and all the wonder of my own young children but I can bring my expanded family once again into the presence of my God as I have done since He placed them in our lives.
Happy Advent! Jesus came and He will come again. He is the unchanging “I AM…” in our ever changing lives.
