I love this time of year. New beginnings are in the air.
Kids head back to school with new backpacks full of fresh pink erasers and pencils with no teeth marks on them. Our campus is awash in proud seniors who are now hesitant freshman, with a tinge of nervousness in their eyes, unsure of where they belong or what they should be doing.
And at 56, I’ll have to admit to a little nervousness and hesitance myself, as I stand in front of three new classrooms full of students, looking to me for answers to questions they don’t even know to ask yet.
Makes me thankful for the new blessings I receive from the Father every day. I’m all too quick to focus on the past, things I would change or do different or wish had never happened, always seeking the do-over. He is quick to remind me today is a new day, filled with possibilities and blessings and a chance to do today better than I did yesterday.
How are you going to spend your do-over today?
For 88.3 The Journey, I’m General Manager Mike Agee.
