Some Change

(A Special Post for SundayScribblings)

"Some change comes down for the better
you feel it move

Then some comes around like the weather
you take that in too"

-Some Change, Boz Scaggs

Hey, at what point - is change not change anymore?

If it is a coin, it's change - I think we can all agree to that. How about a couple of single dollars mixed in with the metal? Don't the bucks become change due to association?

...and, then, what if you happen to have a single 5 spot in your pocket - now, a fiver still has some value on it's own. Yet....I think a case can be made when it is mixed in with lower denominations that it now degrades to becoming just simple, ordinary change.

Hmmmm....look what happened to that mighty 5 dollar bill - when it started hanging around with lesser sums, it became no different than them.

Who are you hanging around with?

Want change? - change who you hang with, what you listen to, and what you read.

This is wonderful and true, true, true! And such a simple thing that can truely "change" a persons whole life. Really.

I think one of the reasons I was able to overcome a lot in my life, was because God planted a seed in me to seek out good people to hange around with. I am sure of it, in fact.

Merry Christmas to you.
