31 Days-Day 3-New
Note: Soon after I committed to 31 Days, I accepted a long-term sub position. Wow…I guess I thought I’d have time to write, but that didn’t happen. The sub position as now ended and I’m back on my 31 Days journey. I will eventually finish this!
There’s something about a new day dawning. I originally said I was going to write about “been there, done that” in my travels for this 31 days and the above photo was taken at Crystal Beach, Texas, the beach I’ve visited since childhood. I have to make a slight adjustment for today’s five-minute Friday word: New. What each new day brings is simply wonderful. The freshness of a sunrise. Fresh dew on the ground. A crispness of the morning—even in Southeast (muggy) Texas, it can take your breath away.
New beginnings are one of my favorite things. A new day, a new week, a new month or year. A chance to start anew is always a welcome experience. A new project, or simply starting over. A blank piece of paper can speak volumes to one who loves to create. A blank, new canvas can enwrap an artist like nothing else. I love traveling so much because I love to learn of new places.
Speaking of things new…we are also told to come to the Father as a child, a newborn babe in Christ. Once we are saved by God’s grace, we are to begin again. The old has passed away, the new has begun. Praise God for new beginnings! We can hold confidence in the fact that God allows do-overs because He is able to make all things new.
