Looking at this lovely fall picture, it reminds me of changes. Summer changed into fall, which
causes us to close pools, rake leaves, get out winter clothes, gather firewood, and put away lawn furniture...
at our house my husband also cleaned out the chimney, & cleaned out the garden...
Thanksgiving preparations are in full swing (thanks to my precious mom and daughter),
and my dear son is putting up our outdoor Christmas lights while the weather is still good

I personally have other changes that await me...due to a recent diagnosis of what they believe
is lymphoma, I am about to have the biggest change of my life...
for certain I will enter into life without a spleen...which may affect my future health for the rest of my life...
and I don't know what awaits me as far as treatments (chemo etc...)

But one thing I do know...although my life circumstances change, my God doesn't

For I am the LORD, I change not; Malachi  3:6

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.  Hebrews 13:8

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17

And so I am thankful today that I have an unchangeable God that walks with me through
the changes I experience on earth.

Thinking of this brings to mind the lyrics of this great hymn:

 Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be.

Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!
Have a blessed Lord's Day
and, cling to Him during your changes too!
