Do-Over

How many of us have longed for a 'do-over' in life? I think we all have at some point.

I remember as a child, my sister and I would yell, "DO- OVER" if we swung a putter and missed the golf ball at Tiny Town. As a teenager, scratching when playing pool- meant I got a 'do-over', right? How about the thousands of times, I've let words escape my mouth that can never be retrieved...

Thankfully, God's mercies are new every morning.


Lamentations3:22-23 
Because of the Lord’s great mercies we are not consumed, 

    for his compassions never fail. 
They are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness. 


So, when I awoke this morning- God gave me a 'do-over'. A new day to seek HIS face.

This blog entry in itself is a do-over. I've wanted to start blogging again for some time. The truth of the matter is, once we dove into our adoption journey and I joined Facebook, my poor little blog was pushed aside. Now, I'm digging it out of the cobwebs and wondered if I should start a new blog or pick up where I left off. I opted for a do-over instead of a start-over. Sure, I could delete the previous posts and keep the same blog name but for now I'll leave it all here. Picking up where I left off; a do-over. 

May your Monday be filled with God's everlasting compassion. Accept his new mercies and rejoice in your do-over.
