Jesus' Mercy Changes Me, We and the World


The More Things Change, The More They Stay the Same.

Have you ever heard this expression?

The more things change, the more they stay the same. I have heard this before, and I had a boss that used it a lot. I admit it was annoying. Over the past year I must say a lot of “stuff” stayed the same and a lot of “stuff” changed. Sometimes in the same day.

  • Wear a mask, don’t wear a mask, wear a mask.
  • Kids will be in school; kids will not be in school. Kids will be in school some days.
  • It is safer outside, it’s ok to be outside, but socially distanced with no more than 6 people, or 10 but it must be the same household or no more than two households.
  • Kids can get sick; kids cannot get sick.

All we know for sure, unless things change, they stay the same.

Even though we have turned the page on a new year, things feel pretty much the same as they were a week or so ago. We hope they will change.

One thing that has not changed over the years is the love of God and, his son Jesus Christ, has changed us. How can we stay the same when we have the love of Jesus in our hearts? We have been changed and been transformed forever.

Have a blessed New Year, may the love of God and his son Jesus Christ change you and be in your heart each and every day. Amen
