Day 1: It


ONCE UPON A TIME

"IT" happened

& you don't even remember IT happening

but IT did

because IT changed you.

The moment IT happened

you knew that you would never be the same.

Maybe you wished IT never happened

or

Maybe you are overjoyed IT happened

but

either way

IT had a powerful of way of changing you.

What is your IT that was or what is right now?

Tears fill my being and I don't know why

because I am not thinking about anything specific.

Maybe it is that my IT

is just plan ole change.

The change that I wish did or didn't wish happen.

ONCE UPON A TIME when my children where little children

all under one roof~

Is that IT?

ONCE UPON A TIME when I was battling the monster of bulimia~

Is that IT?

ONCE UPON A TIME when my father was still living~

Is that IT?

Or is IT that Life keeps moving in a forward motion

with each Tick Tick Tick

that initiates change beyond our control.

But then

IT happens~

HE doesn't change

Never Ever Never

yet

HE changes you & me

in the midst of our

IT

the moment we invite

HIM

into our places & spaces that overtakes our soul

that we have no control over.

HIS PEACE

covers every IT that is beyond our control

by transcending our understanding with such contentment beyond our control

that moves us forward with every changing

Tick Tick Tick

when our eyes are not

FIXED

on IT

but on

HIM

who

ONCE UPON A TIME

was born to change

IT all

that

changes us

Forever Ever & Ever

no matter

how big or small our

IT is

because

HE is always IT!

"Therefore we do not lose heart.

Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.

For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen,

but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary,

but what is unseen is eternal"

(2 Corinthians 4:16-18)
