I was eating a really tasty homegrown tomato this morning & it reminded me of my dad, who totally loved tomatoes! One year, I remember he planted more than 100 tomato plants, hoping for a bumper crop!! Some things never changed with my dad: strong coffee with cream & sugar, loving people, finding a priceless treasure for cheap, homegrown tomatoes & lots more. As my dad aged, he seemed to appreciate change less and less. That’s the tricky part – life is all about change: our bodies change, the government changes, we have to change cars, sometimes our clothes stop fitting & LOTS more!
But here are some things that NEVER, EVER, EVER change:
- God’s love for you never increases or decreases – it’s continual & consistent
- time – it doesn’t stop nor slow down no matter how our perceptions change
- the need that humanity has for God – humans always need genuine love, full stop
