afresh

I love new beginnings.
New day.
New season.
New year.
New beginnings.
Where it all starts afresh.



Where the worries of yesterday are past and the day starts anew. I love that each day starts new and fresh with no mistakes. I love that God's mercies are new every morning. I need to remember that with the grace I have on my kids. It needs to be fresh each day. Not letting yesterdays trials spill over onto a new day.

I think of this when I sit on my back porch and watch the sun stream through the trees. Great place for coffee and peace and quiet. This is the view of the day beginning it's fresh start in my own back yard.

It is like the sun is creeping through just to remind me of new beginnings, new grace, new mercies. Enjoy the lovely reminder.

Isn't it incredible that we get a fresh start with Jesus. I love the picutres of the back yard. It's just like us sitting on the front porch and listening to the sounds. PS-I had deer in my garden yesterday! :)

Yes, I love a new day. I start each day with great anticipation of all that can be accomplished. I've noticed that the quality of my evening is highly affected by the the amount of "Mom jobs" that I have been able to check off of my list during the day. I too, love starting fresh every day.

What beautiful pictures. What a blessing to have such a pretty yard and have space to enjoy God's nature. I love a rare morning where I beat everyone up and share a few quiet minutes with God; it helps me feel like I have a jump-start on my day. Love your thoughts, totally agree...new grace and strength for each new day.

I love new beginnings as well. I feel like we are starting a new beginning here since we are finally done with guests and can get back to normal life!

Oh my goodness, this is your view each morning!!?? I would love to wake up to that each day. I can't believe you are selling, it must be hard to leave in a way.
