What is so amazing about transformation is that we really see it happen right in front of our eyes. You have to look over time to see it. This is why we like to look at old photographs, and why parents put notches on door frames – so you can measure, observe and be inspired by the transformation.
Well, we are in the digital age, so cast door frames to the wind. Check out what this film maker has done with his son and daughter. He has captured their growth from infancy to current day ( 9 and 12) a week at a time. It’s a fascinating few minutes as you see them pass through the stages of live and transform right before your eyes.
As a parent these video’s are just a tad depressing when you realize that those 12 years seemed to have passed in a mere 120 seconds!
But at the same time, it’s incredibly inspiring, and encouraging. We work everyday for change and transformation, but sometimes we don’t have the correct perspective to see it. Keep working to transform yourself each day. I am sure that if you could see yourself a week at a time, you would be wowed, just like these videos.
18 And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:18 English Standard Version (ESV)
