A Brand New Start

One of the greatest gifts of life is that we have a chance every day for a brand new start.  As long as we’re living, we have the opportunity to start again.  There’s no cap on how many times.  We aren’t born with five little “new start” tickets in our pockets (“Sorry, you used up your last new start when you were twelve”). 

Al began one more new start yesterday.  He did choose to stay out of Colorado and instead live at a halfway house in another state.  His dad drove him. 

Do we know what happens next?  No, we don’t.  But I’m grateful that he has this opportunity and that he’s grown strong enough and determined enough to give this new start a try.   God bless!
