When I was 17… I made really selfish choices. I didn’t make the same ones at 20. Growth . At 23 , I was unsure, and unaware. At 25, I was a different person. At 30, I questioned every move that I made, every decision that I decided, and every blessing that God gave me. At 35…I began to see my Father for who he was, my heavenly father, that is, and that lead me to see my husband, and my children for who they really are. I am 38 now, and I’m not the same. I’m not even the same woman that I was yesterday morning. My heart is so soft that one song, one word…one message can change it. And they do. I am happy to be a work in progress. I am going forward, evolving if you will. And what about you ? Are you still listening to the same music that you listened to 10 years ago ? Wearing the same lipstick, and sporting the same hairstyle ? And your spiritual life…has it changed as you’ve grown older ? We will never arrive. So anyone who tells you they have it all figured out is lying.
One more thought…I fall more in love with my husband as he changes. Shocking, and sweet surprise to me ! His heart is for God, and as he draws closer, I am all the more attracted to him. My Father is so good to me. Ashes for beauty, every single day around here. So, in closing…when someone asks me if I believe in evolution…the answer is, well yes, yes I do.
