There is a symbol that we noticed as we have traveled through Bali that permeates their temples, community centers and homes everywhere. We liked it so much that we had it carved into the edge of our Balinese tables and our front door is covered with it.
It is a symbol that means “Life is Always Changing”.
So true! Children are only the age they are for one day and then they’re another day older. Life is never exactly the same so we have to catch the moments as they come!
Charity came home from San Francisco last weekend for her best friend’s wedding. These two have been together from day one of their lives. What great memories they have of growing up together.
But now that Jane is married, the friendship is still strongly intact but in some ways…changed!
Still great…but different!
Soon this will be Charity in someone else’s arms!
As if that weren’t enough, the seasons are also changing! The undergrowth on the hill across from our house looks very different than it did in the spring when it felt as though we lived in verdant Switzerland!
And the quakies are starting to turn yellow.
And the mums are out!
You gotta love the changing of the seasons!
One of the most pervading changes in our society is the “in your face” sexually promiscuous media. When we were in New York last week, we saw the sign below everywhere! To see this when we were young adults would have been unthinkable. Even today it almost breathtaking. If my mother (who was born in 1905) would have seen it, she probably would have died of embarrassment and fainted on the spot!
I’m referring to the sign, not the advertisement for the movie (which is pretty crazy in its own right)! Dad did call the number and was just a bunch of “if you are a straight female touch 1, if you are a gay male, touch 2 etc. etc.
What a world!
We are so grateful for the guidance of the scriptures and the anchor of a living prophet who guides us and gives us direction that helps us to live happy, healthy lives. Because….the world is precarious and always changing!
