Changes in our lives can make us happy or sad.
Love change? Despise change? Indifferent to change?
It forever alters our lives for better or for worse.
Do you flip flop on change? Set in your ways?
Can’t teach an old dog new tricks? Fixed
In your ways? Do you belong to the school
of thought that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it?
Does change make you uncomfortable?
How about a change of pace? A change
of scenery? Or shall I simply change the
subject? Do you see the writing on the wall?
Change can be difficult but is necessary.
This weekend I will observe people and
their comments as they change where to sit.
Chairs moved at church. So? Pianos, organ,
music books, microphones, and music stands.
All changed to the corner. Acoustics?
Visual cues? Sound system? Changes.
Some folks are creatures of habit. I recall
attending workshops which sometimes
lasted a couple days. We always sat in
the same seat as if it belonged to us.
The jury is still out with seating arrangements
at church. Time will tell. Positive, negative,
rigid or inflexible, the choir has a temporary place
as new carpets and chairs are installed. A welcome
change of pace? A breath of fresh air? Will we grumble
or accept change gracefully? Hmm. Let’s see!
