New Beginnings

As we begin the Christmas season, I remind myself that with God, nothing is lost, nothing is irredeemable.  In His Son, I am a new creation.

“There is always the opportunity for a new beginning in our relationship with God.  Because God is infinite, unlimited possibility for growth and starting new exists.” Rueben Job

“I do not belong to the powers and principalities that rule the world but to the Good Shepherd who knows his own and is known by his own.  In the presence of my Lord and Shepherd there truly is nothing I shall want.  He will, indeed, give me the rest my heart desires and pull me out of the dark pits of my depression.”  Henri Nouwen

Water settings of a New Hampshire fall

Nothing gives more dynamism to fall colors than seeing them with, in, and around water.  Here are a very few scenes of the many we have enjoyed.

New Hampshire fall: trees and leaves

Meg and I are nearing the end of our annual New Hampshire fall trip to visit our younger son, Michael, and his wife.  As always, the days have been full of enjoyment of family and the nature that surrounds them here. Although the colors were technically past their “prime,” unique patches of yellows, reds, and oranges stand out amidst the otherwise bare forest–maybe like our own uniqueness stands out from the crowd when we allow the Light to radiate from us!

Enjoying and accepting the Seasons, New Hampshire

The cycle of the seasons reminds me both that my life is transitory, and that my life is deeply part of the eternity of God. Nothing is lost; everything is gained; all is given in love!
