Why is Change So Hard?

Why is change so hard?

I am in the midst of moving again and I'm really struggling.  I'm so thankful to be relocating back to a more central Phoenix location.  But the upheaval of moving and having to pick only what is necessary is hard for me.

I've been on spring break but it's been a time of painting, packing and decision making.  This isn't something I enjoy.  As a life long book lover, I am having to let go of my collection of so many books as we have no room in an 860 square foot condo.  Thank goodness for my Kindle!

As I go through this time of change, I want to share my struggles with you.  My life is not perfect.  My response to life issues isn't perfect.  But I'm so very thankful for good friends and that God is my strength.  I don't know how I'd get through life without Him.

During this time of transition, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite things.  I love my Pinterest finds.

I love flowers, candles and simple settings.

I love children.  I'm looking forward to going back to work in our Pre-K 3 class tomorrow.

I love times of solitude.  I enjoy people but need balanced times of being alone.

I can definitely say that God isn't finished with me yet.

But since this blog is called Heart Choices ...I choose joy!  After all, it's a fruit of the Spirit.

Will you pray for me during this season of change ...again?

I remind myself of God's Word:
"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."  Isaiah 41:10

Thank you!

Blessings and love,
