Cecelia, Kevin’s daughter, and Caroline, my granddaughter, are beginning their freshman year of college. Emily, Maggie, and Joe (three other grandchildren) are beginning in new high schools. These major shifts in their lives will bring numerous new experiences and opportunities. But what is new for those of us who aren’t experiencing major changes in our lives?

During a recent training at Trinity Lutheran School, Pastor Martin Bentz offered a wise insight when he shared that he can dwell on negative experiences from his past that results in him experiencing worry or frustration in the present. Yes, we can repeat the past when we choose not to live each moment as a new beginning.

Imagine our life as reading a book.

Would you be interested in reading chapter four if it was a rewrite of chapter three?

Let’s realize that the next chapter has not yet been written. Sure, some things will continue from chapter to chapter, but something new is also possible.

Time for Action: What is something new you want to experience or learn? What is a change you want to make?

With a bit of courage and commitment, your next chapter will include something new.

From our Top 20 team…Willow, Kevin, and Tom…who enjoy the magic of new beginnings.
