New Things.....

I love new things. New purses. New clothes. New Journals. New Shoes. Ok not so much new shoes, but only because I don't like breaking them in.

A NEW BLOG!! I've been wanting to start one for awhile now and finally took the plunge. So here it is.....

But what I love more than anything are NEW BEGINNINGS!! I love a fresh start. A new year. A brand new semester. I just started one of those again this week. It's my second year of graduate school which is also exciting. I've always loved the start of a new year or semester of school. Call me weird, but I've always enjoyed the excitement of going to a new class. Seeing who all is in class. I love school shopping. Getting new books, notebooks, pens, hilighters, backpacks, etc. There's always an excitement in the air.

Something new always insinuates a blank page for me with no mistakes made. A fresh, new opportunity for good things to happen.

Proverbs 43:19, NLT says
"For I am about to do something new! See I have already begun. Do you not see it?"

I came across this verse recently again and it has really spoken to my heart. I have been struggling in some areas over the past several months. I have made some less than wise choices that have led me to my current state. I have felt God's love and grace so much through friends and I am working on getting back to where I want to be. I love that God wants to do something new in me and I am excited to see where that will take me and what new things I can experience in Him.

Create in me a clean heart oh God, and restore a right spirit within me.
