As I type this I am in an airport waiting several hours for my next flight. Thankfully, I have access to an airline lounge with food, drink and clean and quiet bathrooms. I can actually leave my bag and walk around without fear of it being taken. Strange and comforting all at the same time.
I’m headed to visit my mom. She is 92 and in the hospital. I had my trip scheduled before she was admitted, but it is still disconcerting.
Aging parents, aging body – mine, not hers :-), selling my house, leaving my job…so, so many changes all at one time.
Maybe you are experiencing changes too. I’ve mentioned Kristen Strong’s upcoming book before…but it has been a GOD SEND in this season of change! If you are experiencing changes in your life, you should SO order this book! It releases September 15th.
In addition to Kristen’s book, maybe you are experiencing an empty nest or you’ve taken your child to college. My friend, Robin Dance, has a mini-series on having an empty nest and the grieving process involved. While Robin is focusing on an empty nest, it is really good for all parents that are taking their kids to college. You can find Part 1 here and Part 2 here.
While I’ve been typing this post, I’ve received a notice that my flight is delayed…just one more change.
Whether we are experiencing taking kids to college, aging parents, job change, airline delays, illness, whatever…no matter the change, God pays attention.
