I find it hard to believe it's Advent again!
I can't get one sentence from yesterday's sermon out of my mind. "Every new beginning means that something has ended."
I've been turning that around in my head, and I realized that every ending also marks the chance for a new beginning.
Another similar saying: "Every time a door closes, another door opens.... but navigating the hallway can be TOUGH!"
So, here I am, thinking about endings and beginnings......... finally able to look back with gratitude instead of angst. Perhaps soon I'll catch a glimpse of the new beginning waiting just down the hall. Meanwhile, I'm grateful for the light in the hallway!
