Spring: Fresh Starts
“Every day is a fresh beginning, Every morning is the world made new.” – Sarah Chauncey Woolsey
Last week I mentioned that my son views The Masters Golf Championship as the official start of spring.
For me, having been raised in the Christian faith, it has always been Easter.
As a child I remember wearing a pretty dress and a little hat to go to church after hunting for eggs.
I still associate spring flowers—daffodils and tulips and crocuses—with Easter and new life and fresh starts. (And, of course, chocolate.)
So, I offer for your Monday Morning Message this week some thoughts on those ideas, some things to ponder as you head back to your lives after a holiday weekend.
Because spring is here, and with it, countless opportunities for new beginnings.
“New beginnings are often disguised as painful endings.” – Lao Tzu
“Forgiveness says you are given another chance to make a new beginning.”— Desmond Tutu
“No one can ever take your memories from you; each day is a new beginning, make good memories every day.” –Catherine Pulsifer
“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
“Although no one can go back and make a brand-new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand-new ending.” – Carl Bard
“Every moment is a fresh beginning.” — T.S. Eliot
