The House that I live in
Today in Bible Study, my friends and I were discussing who we were, who we are and what lies ahead. As I have thought about this I know that I am still the same little girl who hung upside down on the monkey bars (in a dress) and the same young lady who fell in love with my highschool sweetheart. What! You don't believe that? Well I am, I haven't changed one bit, it's the house that this person lives in that has changed.
Over the years, it has had many changes. Some of them are improvements, some are structural changes because of age and some of them are just maintenance. I might add that it just takes a lot of work to keep an older house in shape.
For example: This house has had additions. Building the upper story was God's plan but when it started to expand outward, well things just seemed to get out of control. I haven't cared for all of those additions but they are there and I haven't done anything about them. Another thing is the shingles. They have changed colors through the years. They have been brown, white, brown and grey but they have been the colors of my choice except the white. Oh and don't forget about the new windows that I have to get every so often. It helps me to get a good look at the world around me. I have also installed a stereo system in this house. (the better to hear you with my dear) Occassionally the foundation seems to fall but this is remedied by the Best Forms available. Somethimes the plumbing gets out of whack. The list could go on but I know that you are getting bored with this little story. Anyhow, I am still that same person, my house is just getting old but, someday God will have the perfect one for me and it will never change.
