Back to School!

As my children skipped out the door early this morning carrying backpacks full of freshly sharpened pencils and crisp clean paper, their hearts were full of anticipation for what the new school year will bring. The excitement of meeting friends, experiencing different teachers, and finding their new classrooms prompted expediency to their school morning routines. The days to come will be filled with new challenges for each one of them, but it is such a blessing to see their enthusiasm to begin. It is a reminder to me of how new beginnings are precious. May I learn to look at each new day with the same fervent spirit I saw in my precious ones this morning.

"The Lord's lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness." Lamentations 3:22,23
