It took about 9 1/2 months. I haven’t been here that long and I’m ready to move. No more concrete building out my window.
Okay, maybe this isn’t what you think. I love where God has planted, called, stationed. located me. I love what I do and I love serving and preaching and everything to my family of Evergreen. But I have this genetic flaw that makes me change things ever so often. You see it in that I go to different trails to hike, try different coffee shops in Lynchburg, move apartments regularly , change up reading genres, and …. you get the gist. Is it ADHD? Who knows. Just a rolling stone.
Yesterday … my office. I switched it around. I have done this quite often before. But I not you anymore and desks seem to keep getting heavier. Today, my zen my be satisfied as I sit at my desk, but my legs are only satisfied after Advil. And when I look out the window now closer to my desk, still a concrete shed, but more trees. I may
My life is like the Israelites in the Wilderness. I never really feel at home in any one place, I guess I’m saving that for when the roll is called up yonder. But I do feel at home with people.

But if I’m saving life for my heavenly homes, I guess I know so many I hang with will be there too, so I feel great with that. Even the ones that may not like me, I see them as eternal neighbors … wohoo. No really, I’ll be a better neighbor by then, and you will too.
A few thoughts …
- Learning to be content in whatever, or wherever, doesn’t mean passivity. We can keep moving forward and trying to better our world and environment. And if that means an office re-arrange, I’m going for it.
- We all are the captain of something, be it a fortune 100 company, a classroom, or just a small desk. Leave your mark, make an impact in your little circle of the world. Lisa changes out flowers in a custom made wooden wall vase.
- Everyone thinks of changing the world, but few think of changing themselves. I pray Lord, start with making me who you want me to be.
- And this, if something’s a bit heavy, it’s okay to ask for help. Lesson learned in my muscular soreness.
Finally … about change … which I wished I would have said, but Gandhi said it first.
Be the change that you wish to see in the world.
