I borrowed that title from a line in the below NOOMA video, from Rob Bell.
I'm not old, but I've definitely lived enough life to know I'm glad things are different. And things will be different. The changes apparently never stop. The process never, really, ends.
Life has been nothing short of interesting for me over the past couple of years. Sarah, my bride, was brought to me in the most special way. God brought her when I least expected.
I had spent the prior few months completely checked out of life. My world had been knocked around a bit. I had had some rough times.
And there she was.
I was different. She was different. Life became different.
The next few months were both some of the best, and hardest, months of my life.
Best, because she was there.
Hardest, because real-change is not easy.
I knew the first night. We met to talk; to prove to ourselves this wasn't the one. But I knew. It's ridiculous, in retrospect. There she was. After all that had happened. There she was.
She is my second chance. My bride is my grace in human-form. She is truly my hero.
From here, life will continue to be interesting. Hard times will continue to occur. The changes will never stop, and I'm glad I understand that now.
