As I previously mentioned, I’m in Texas to be present for a new beginning in Jack’s life.
The night before we left I witnessed a new beginning. One of the buds on my night-blooming cereus opened. It took just 20 minutes from the first hint of blossoming to full bloom.
So stunning that a bear came by for the viewing around 2am, knocking over a recently planted pot of parsley and awakening me. Good view of the visitor, though, as I gazed down on the deck. I wonder what array, or disarray, awaits my return.
Perhaps there are more “new beginnings” for all the plants I potted recently. I hope not. For now, those concerns are in my rear view mirror.
Here are some cloud views I enjoyed from my chair-in-the-sky as I journeyed to Texas.
Clouds certainly are filled with new beginnings as they constantly morph into new shapes.
Greeted by the family with hugs and smiles, we are on course to honor Jack for having met all graduation requirements in preparation for commencement. And then to witness that commencing as he crosses the dais and flips his tassel!
Both sets of grandparents, whom have each experienced many new beginnings, are here to enjoy and celebrate.
I begin this new day with a Texas sunrise, and morning coffee enjoyed outside – before that sun can accomplish its heating task.
For I know the plans I have for you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11.
