I lurk on a bulletin board of people who are due to have babies in November. One person had a comment today about the end being in sight...my thought was, man, this is just the BEGINNING!
Then I was talking with the kids, and we used "commence" as a word for begin...and I thought about college commencement. Yes, it's the end of college...but it's the beginning of a whole new phase.
I'm terrible at endings. But what I'm realizing is that endings are really beginnings. Yes, there may things you miss about the old, but God is doing something new.
Thanks, Lord, that you make all things new.
