Nothing is forever - Hebrews 13:


March 6, 2013
Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.



I’m feeling nostalgic today after making one last trek to the department store of my childhood. Our downtown Macy’s, formerly Foley’s, is set to close this weekend. The store holds treasured memories of family and friends who joined me on many shopping journeys.  

My brother and I rode downtown on many a Saturday with our grandparents. The guys would drop us off at Foley’s for what seemed like hours. My grandmother would inspect all the merchandise and buy clothes for me. I remember wearing many fashions I didn't like just to please her.

My best friend who passed away many years ago was another shopping companion. We’d buy elephant pants and other "hip" 70s clothing at Foley's. Mostly, we loved riding the escalators and looking at makeup. Later when the name changed, I shopped at Macy’s with my daughter, friends and colleagues for many years.  

The memories will always be with me. Change happens. People, places and things evaporate from our lives. But one constant remains:

God’s love.
