Two years ago, while visiting with a friend about producing a newsletter to share thoughts and convictions with friends past and present, he exclaimed – Why a newsletter! Why not a blog? The result of his coaxing and coaching has been mereHope. Two years and many posts later, I am thinking “Why would I ever do a newsletter?” I enjoy blogging, and I hope people actually enjoy reading what I post!
As you can see, some changes have been made to mereHope. In upgrading WordPress, my blog gurus (Michael and Jayson) have totally reworked the banner and format. The ‘eyes’ gone! What is left is a cleaner look that is hopefully easier to read. For sure, it is a lot easier for me to manage and post.
More importantly, it is just good to change. The worst thing for the mind, heart, or spirit is get into a rut — for things to stay the same. Without change atrophy sets in, we perform by rote, and growth ceases to be part of our lives. Change is good in that it challenges us to call on different skills, take another path, and think new thoughts. Change forces us to hope for a different kind of world and to hope we might be people of change in that world.
