Still Eating, Praying, and Loving

In continuing my thoughts on my recent read Eat. Love. Pray. by Elizabeth Gilbert....
About halfway through her stories of Italy, Elizabeth makes these statements, "...this world is chaotic,...[don't] get attached to any obsolete ideas about who I am, what I represent, whom I belong to, or function I may once have intended to serve....one must always be prepared for riotous and endless waves of transformation." This so resonated with me, just a reminder about change. As my life evolves, and I evolve with it, I can't cling to what I thought I knew or who I thought I was. One thing that won't change is my relationship with God, or in essence, who I belong to. I am so grateful to know, and I mean really know, that I held safely in Him. While my life is defined with change and with unknowns, He is known and I belong to Him. Everything else is just part of the journey! And I'm determined to the enjoy the ride.
