New Beginnings

With the approach of this new life, at the same time of the coming of Spring—when everything comes to life once more, when old things becomes new, it brings thoughts of new beginnings. As each new year approaches, most people tend to make “New Year’s Resolutions,” which sadly, are rarely ever kept. I find it interesting that the “new year” was actually celebrated at the beginning of April, in the early Spring, then later changed to January, the former a far more fitting time, in my opinion.

As I watch Spring drawing near, as the flowers start to bloom, as we anticipate the birth of our newest member, I’ve begun to think of new beginnings. We have started so many new things of late, embarked on new paths, adventures and journeys. The birth of this new child will make yet another change in our lives. Though this will bring challenges and trials, sweet moments and rich blessings also will follow. We are only brought along weary and difficult paths to strengthen our faith in Christ and ultimately, bring glory to our King.

  2. lol, Sarah. Yes, it is rather hard to keep up with me. ;-)

    Yes, I wish we were going to be able to make it to MassHOPE this year, but the baby will most likely make is entrance into this world anyday now, so we won't be able to attend. :( Say, has Nathan and Jeanine had their baby yet? I didn't see anything on your blog about it....
