New Things

Thus says God, the LORD, who created the heavens and stretched them out,
who spread out the earth and what comes from it, who gives breath to
the people upon it and spirit to those who walk in it: "I am the LORD, that is
my name. The former things have come to pass, and new things I now declare;
before they spring forth, I tell you of them." (Isaiah 42:5 and 8-9, NRSV) 

Write a prayer of preparation for the new things that surely come to each of us, and -- better yet -- for the new things that God has in store for all of creation, the reconciliation and healing that we have not even begun to imagine! I'll be writing my prayer at Faith and Water.

Looking back, I can see
The preparations you began
Many years in the making
And here I am
At the threshold of a new beginning.
Even though I am not sure
Even though I am scared
I hear your call
I heed your voice
I will pack my home, my life
And go where you lead

Fun at Lake Elmo

We had loads of fun at Lake Elmo last night!

Maggie says this hat really brings out her personality!
