A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;—Ecclesiastes 3:4
There is a tendency to think of change as the enemy. Many of us are suspect of change and will often fight and resist it before we have even discovered what the actual effects will be. When change is thought through carefully, it can produce the most rewarding and profound experiences in life. The changes we make must fit the Lord’s purposes and patterns.—Marvin J. Ashton
