Life Is Full Of Swift Transitions

I love the phrase life is full of swift transitions.

I was debating if that’s really true. Then I had a conversation with a friend who informed me that a mutual acquaintance who used to be the in-person in certain church circles was now not so loved because of some trifling matter. As it affected an influential person on the church scene it suddenly made that person struck off the list for events.

I imagined what it would be like to be in his position, one day being considered to be such a lovely fellow and one to watch and the next a virtual pariah.

Life is indeed full of swift transitions.

Another friend who was one of the healthiest, liveliest you’re likely to meet was told that they had a condition that would eat away at his system. The transformation between active and almost a recluse who ballooned in weight appeared to take place in the blink of an eye.

Life is indeed full of swift transitions.

She was minding her own business in the office sort files as usual when her boss walked in and informed her that she was being promoted from office clerk to personal assistant to the chief executive. Not only was that an incredible increase in her income, it also brought her into contact with some of the most influential people in the city. She had thought life was good before, but now it was though had stepped things up a gear or three.

Life is indeed full of swift transitions.

So do I say that and finish off with a sentiment about holding onto to the only thing that remains unchanged? Well you can come up with that sentiment. I am just marvelling at how life is full of swift transitions – everything much change, nothing remains the same.

For His Name’s Sake
