The Winds of Change....



March 1, 2011

Do you see it????

Where....? Over There!..... It's coming.....

Do you smell it????

What...? In the Air....Changes....

Hanging in.....

Getting Focused.....

Happy Changes

Sad Changes

Hard Changes

But....I say it again....BUT!....Change is good. It makes us step out of the comfortable, the settled, the accepted, the resigned, the lazy...unstretching...unchallenging...days.

CHANGE....

It's coming. The March Winds are blowing it in, and Time is marching...**(and other things are marching too)...BUT...I can not speak of it.........yet...


Life is not static. When the winds of change come in, one can either stand against it and be unwilling...unflexing...unmoving... and be blown to smithereens, or they can let go, grab on to the rope of faith and go with the wind. God is always working. Sometimes we are not made to feel it, other times we are literally uprooted by it.

Hang On!



Are you feeling the Winds of Change where you are? Are you ready to fly?

an e-journal entry.....simply. What would I pen on the page for today?.....

A LONG day ahead of me.

My bumper sticker I would print up and slap on the back of my van today...

Never underestimate the strength, courage, and endurance of a woman who raised 3 boys and one being a Marine.....

If you see it, you are behind me. :-) Blessings!

Good to see a post up from you, Julie dear. Love the picture of your puppies! It makes me want to skip a few months so we can get our puppy!

Will continue to pray for you through all of these winds of change in your life.

Love you!

Huge changes coming for us, also. This is where the rubber meets the road....faith...or fear...

Glad to hear from you again, Julie. Are
you going to keep us in suspense? Hope

wow lady, you are hitting a nerve with many of us...and I feel your words sting like they are my own. We've been through so much this past year and yet more is coming. God is in control, and He is so faithful. We can trust Him. Amen, Yes, and I can testify to that!! I am praying for you and whatever that wind of change is bringing your way today and in the future. (Maybe God is going to join you and your beloved soon???? Just guessing..ha)

Love you so much!! xoxo

Hello dear Julie. I've been thinking about you and thought I would pop in to catch up. Now you have me curious with your talk of some changes coming your way. Glad to see there is a happy change coming mixed in with the other sad and hard changes. We'll be here for you when you are able to reveal more, until then I'll hold you in my thoughts. Sending love to you Julie. ~Lili

I smell the winds of change for you too, Julie! I pray for easy transitions - or at least strength in them! I know the Lord will be with you. So glad you got to spend time with your men!

Oh, my heart would
skip A BEAT if I
were to see your
lovely slogan on a
bumper sticker and
know that it was YOU!!!
I am very curious
about all of these
changes and know that
you will face them
head on, with the grace,
courage, love and
kindness that you
exhibit to all of us
who read your words.
Sending you big hugs
and prayers, sweet friend!

Julie, I'm waving as I float in the wind of change. This week we changed careers, home, cities, church, friends.... :) like the puppies, face the wind-breathe it in so it become a part of your inner being! To change is to grow; to grow is to change.
