New Beginnings

"The thing life is fullest of is the thing we find hardest to believe in. New beginnings. The incredible gift of a fresh start. Every new year. Every new day. Every new life. What wonderful gifts! And when we spoil things, and life goes all wrong, we feel dismayed, because we find it so hard to see that we can start again. God lets us share it too, you know. Only God can give life, it's true - make a new baby or a new year - but he gives us the power to give each other a new beginning, to forgive each other and make a fresh start when things go wrong."

(From The Hawk and the Dove, Penelope Wilcock)


Thanks God for His new beginnings! I praise Him for my new heart and for friendships that do not die with hard ends, but are renewed.
