New Beginnings

“It’s the first day of school. Are you excited?” Furrowed brows stare back at me. Another comes bouncing into the kitchen smiling and looking very well put-together. The other is still sleepily dragging himself ready. Anxiety and dread mixed with excitement and hope for the future. What will this year bring?

One is packing boxes to move to another place nearby. Leaving the old behind and starting a new life in a new place. Hope unfolds with anticipation of the unknown. 

Another is packing for a long journey. A new adventure to an unknown land. Much anticipation. Much to learn.

One committed to serve for several years. Excitement, but surely some nervousness about the unknown as well. 

Summer vacations over and schools beginning. Overnight, the highway is crowded with more cars. It appears everyone is geared up for a new season.

So much hope in the air. The future unsure. Greater things are yet to come. Change brings opportunity. A new season unfolds for each of us. A new season to learn and grow in Him. What lies ahead? 

Remembering a famous quote, I don't know what the future holds but I know Who holds my future.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. “ Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:6 (NKJV)

My hope is in you Lord - for You hold my future.

Blessings of Grace,


  1. Ha! You can say that again, I wish Monday was still far away, but thank God for His grace for this season.
    Have a super blessed day!

  2. Oh yes, thank you Lord for your grace this season. I'm going to need it more than ever. Or is it just that I am realizing more than ever how much I need His grace? ;)

    Thank you for stopping by!
