Some Things Never Change | Five-Minute Friday

There is something I love about this almost-Fall morning. The cool, crisp air makes 42°F feels refreshing, my coffee is still a lukewarm, and it's Five-Minute Friday! Win, win, win!

What's a "free write"? No editing, no over-thinking, no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation. Just write!

This week's word is:


00:00 START the timer!

My best friend came over for a visit yesterday and we had a wonderful time catching up, reminiscing and laughing.

Over the past four years, we have changed so much. It seems like nothing is the same.

Marriage, moving away and two kids make it hard to recognize the "me" in the pictures from four years ago.

We used to see each other daily and now it's more of a every-few-months sort of thing. We're older... and I would like to think wiser as well :)

Some things never change.

Months have passed yet our conversation starts off right where the last one ended.

There is never a dull moment. While we both have changed so much, something about our friendship stays the same through it all.

A true friendship that sticks together through all the changing seasons of life is hard to find. It is a treasure and I am so thankful for ours!

Our friendship is a reminder of my relationship with Jesus.

This world is changing - and not for the better.

Yet Jesus is the SAME.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. HEBREWS 13:8
He hasn't changed and He never will. Jesus is our Rock and our Refuge. 

Throughout the turbulence of life, we can count on Jesus to be by our side through it all. He is with us and His promises stand the same yesterday, today and forever!

  1. I think you and I were tracking on the same path as far as how things aren't the same. Through all the changes in our lives, Jesus remains the same. Blessed to be your neighbor for FMF!
