Day 9: Chapters

Today’s lesson… life has chapters. Each one unique, some extra sweet, but none go on forever. Clinging to the last one means that you miss cues (and beauty) in this one.

Did I ever think that by 55 I’d be married to my dear one, with grown and happy offspring (near and far), living in a wonderful city neighborhood, and free to type whatever my heart renders? Nope.

Did I ever think that church would be a source of nostalgia? Nope. But here we are. Poignant as my Facebook feed fills with news of the wider church and I feel the tug.

The question is simple: carpe diem or wallow. We can’t have it both ways.
