Today is not just another day.
It's a new opportunity,
A new beginning.
Today is the last Five Minute Friday hosted over at Lisa Jo's place. She has passed the baton onto someone else. Today is a day of Good-byes and New Beginnings.
The rules are always simple:
Write for five minutes without worrying about whether it is just right or not.
Link up over at Lisa Jo's.
Go and read and comment on the person who linked up before you.
Let’s write on one word for five beautiful, sacred, unrushed, unedited minutes —-> the word is BEGIN:
I can't tell you how many times that I have had to start over, to begin again. There is one thing that I have learned in my life and that is that no matter what happens to us, no matter what choices we make, no matter what others think or act like, we always have the choice to begin again. We get to choose to forgive. We choose to move on, past the hard place, to find the promised joy at long last.
There are times in my life when i have wished so hard that things would not go the way they were heading. I have had to learn that endings are most often difficult. But with the ending is always a chance to begin again.
I love that idea when I think about my Savior and how much He loves me. He will take my sins and remove them from me. All the red stains become as white as snow when I am willing to turn my life to Him and begin, once again.
Hope is in the beginning. It strengthens me and carries me onward through my trials. Through the endings that are so very hard. He comforts my heart, eases my mind and lets me start over to become.
The sweetness is always in the ability to begin.
Now it is your turn. What can you write in your own five minutes? Don't forget to go over to Lisa Jo's this week and join up with the rest of us. I hope to see you there!
