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.

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.
