And … GO.


I have a love/hate relationship with same.

I hold a baby close to my chest and breathe in the curls of his hair, and I want the moment to last forever. Just lay here and sleep with your breath on my shoulder, and let me rock us both without a sound until Jesus comes back and all is right in the world.

I want to freeze time and keep the still frame in my mind, without a single change.

But time resists and I lose my appeal and most days my fickle heart gets antsy and longs for new. New scenery. New routine. I strain to get out of the rut of discontentment by reaching toward anticipation.

I celebrate diversity and unity in one breath.

And I realize that deep down, we’re all the same:

We’re all broken sinners in desperate need of unchanging grace. In desperate need of the One who is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.
