Yes, I know that blogging isn't exactly new, but it is a recent art form. Not long ago we didn't have apps, phones that made cameras obsolete for most people, or tablets that made phones obsolete.
In fact, tablets meant either paper or stone, logging on was the goal of woodsmen, re-booting happened because your foot got wet, streaming was also wet, viruses were fought with chicken soup, apples were eaten and files were metal.
Seasons change, technology changes, the world is changing faster than we can keep up with it, and we are changing, too. We grow older, maybe wiser, but certainly into new seasons. Children become adults, then parents, then see season after season of their family's life. Eventually they become empty nesters and grandparents.
It is Apple Festival time again here in Bayfield. It seems like summer should still be here. Soon the leaves will fall along with the snow.
In the midst of life there is one constant. God never changes. He is the same today as He was in the beginning, and He will be the same after all we know is gone forever.
People live. People die. People disappoint us, people hurt us, people are inconsistent. God remains. He is Life.
Isn't it amazing how tightly we hold onto this life? Some day soon it will all be over. A new season will begin. But God will still be there.
Who are you holding tightly? Yourself, your life, your technology? Or are you holding tightly to your God, the One who will never move?
He has been here through every season of your life. And He has promised that He will never leave you, never forsake you!
Isn't that worth holding onto?
