I've experienced a good deal of transition in my 25 years. Mine is probably no more significant than those around mefor it is a common experience shared by man. And in this common experience, I believe there are shared emotions, inspirations, and struggles. I often hear people say that they hate change, so as a social norm we bemoan the cross country move, the job transition, or the end of a term. I propose that as a proper stage of mourning the loss of what was, we celebrate that which is to come. I think that this cake in particular is a necessary mode to celebrate with those we love.

It is not just about a cake. Clearly. (Or at least I hope that is clear, if not, y'all probably think I'm a crazy person.) I think it is about the stopping. Pausing to reflect back on all that is worth celebrating and looking forward to all the blessings on the horizon. Together, in a shared experience, we pause to celebrate.

Thought! Looking to help revise the outdated design of my steadfast blog. Thinking regarding the nice branding at https://interiortech.com? Actually a credible acrylic sign company if needed in the PENNSYLVANIA location. Leave a comment. Many thanks!

But when the celebration has commenced, and I take a first step into the newness of changeI often have a crisis of emotion. I am a jumble of sad, excited, uncertain, and hopeful. When I make those first movements into the new season I am often unsteadied, looking for some stability. And these three quotes are words that have fed my soul, guided my way amidst the haze of the new:

" For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. " -Jeremiah 29:11, The Bible

" I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship. " -Louisa May Alcott, Little Women

" Come to me,all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. " -Jesus in Matthew 11:28, The Bible

Let those sink in. In any form of transition and change I see these three things: (1) A need for hope in the future, that there is a Sovereignty that has a plan, a good plan. (2) Faith that all circumstances, whatever they be are to our benefit. They are working out a strength within us. (3) A deep need for a place of love to rest. Transition is exciting, but utterly exhausting. Our bodies, our minds, our hearts, our spirits need a place, a space to come and be. Be restored.

The Lord offers us all that we need to walk forward in change: hope, faith, and love. Thus I celebrate transition, though it may rock us to and fro, it is in these times that we learn to sail our ship, that our hope is grown in a future in God, and a time that we search for true rest and peace. To change, to live, to faith and to love do I share this banana cake today.
