The More Things Change

The more things change, the more they stay the same. ~ Alphonse Karr, French novelist (1808-1890)

My current writing adventure has its roots in another time from long ago.  The main character is a crazy man living in the Winter of his life who wants to find a way to climb out of his cave.  The more I get to know this lunatic, the more similarities I find in myself and the people around me.  Here are some examples:
  1. Modes of communication may change, however, the need to communicate is timeless.
  2. Geography may separate us from the ones we love, however, our love for them stays the same.
  3. Environment may change what we wear on the outside, however, it cannot change who we are on the inside.
  4. We may change our beliefs about what we can and cannot do, however, the possibilities remain constant.
  5. Evil may change its name or its flavor, however, its destructive forces produce the same consequences.
  6. Good may lose its popularity or its place in society, however, it will always be the same as it ever was.
  7. The Bible may be translated into different languages, however, it will never lose its meaning.
  8. Churches may fight about who is right and who is wrong, however, it won't change who God is.
  9. What you see in the mirror may look different over time, however, what God sees in you, a reflection of Himself, never changes.
  10. No matter how cold and dark your Winter may be, there will always be a Spring.
My prayer for you today is that you embrace all the changes you face in your life.  You are the perennial no matter what season of the year you are living in.  The world will be waiting for your flower to bloom again.
