Is this THE END or A NEW BEGINNING?




Whether I am reading a book, watching a movie, or listening to someone share -- I absolutely love a great story. I love watching the plot develop and I especially love the possibilities surrounding each new beginning.

I hate endings. Closing the page of a book I've loved, the screen fading to black and the credits rolling after I've enjoyed a good movie, and a chapter in my life coming to a conclusion that has been life changing.

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

My daughter and I are in the process of turning the page of an incredible chapter. The details are too many to describe. Yesterday, we said goodbye to Tiger's Edition, affectionately known as Eddy, our 12 year old, thoroughbred. Today, both Chelsea and Eddy begin a new chapter.

In the spring of 2006, Eddy was adopted by us through New Vocations -- a race horse adoption group located in Ohio. He came to us very green with little experience or training. After over 3 years of intentional and dedicated loving care, determination, and amazing resolve... Eddy and Chelsea have grown in strength, confidence, and beauty. You can see this in them... the possibilities hidden inside of them are emerging. No doubt, they are different as a result of this chapter of their lives.

My Chelsea is an amazing young woman -- I am honored to be her mom and even more grateful to be her friend.

I am also trusting God and remembering these words found in a little book in the Old Testament

Look... & watch and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.
Habakkuk 1:5

Today, I'm just wondering what's next...
