Flexibility...

Flexibility...now who knew that the Lord would have me work on this. If you were to ask me if I was flexible I'd say "somewhat"...ha ha I can hear some of you chuckling as you know very well I'm not flexible at all... I didn't think it was such a huge deal to be flexible...but the Lord has shown me otherwise...

I am finding what a blessing it is to others when I'm joyful and content with change. Change is the story of my life these days...things are always changing or plans being changed. If you know me, you know how much I dislike change and usually have an attitude that isn't so sweet if change happens...but the Lord is showing me that I can be "flexible" and "joyful" at the same time...who knew...

My new motto: (do I dare print it?)..."Change is good"...I think the Lord needs my vessel clean and refined so He can give me more of His Joy...so I can give that joy to others as they come into my life...

Thank you for stopping by...

Dory;

I just love visiting Plants and Pillars. Thanks for keeping it updated for us all. While reading about flexibility it reminded me of how important it is to have a balanced life, including family, health, friends, love and responsibility. Your Mom used to tell me this all the time and always said that included eternity too. I know we will be in each others thoughts as we remember her on October 14th. Hugs and prayers to you all. Thanks too for all the beautiful smiles.

That our sons may be as plants
and our daughters may be pillars sculptured in palace style.
