Reflection: “Change is the law of life. Those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future.” John F. Kennedy

Change can be exciting, but it can also be frightening. Whatever we have to face each day we know that many things do not stay the same. Our bodies change, our thoughts and emotions mature and our understanding develops. There is security about things remaining the same but that way lies stagnation. New life comes from facing change with courage.

Prayer: Lord, you are the beginning and the end, both before us and behind us, be our guide and strength as we develop and change. Amen
