Here's to new beginings

So I've been thinking... when you move to a new area you have an opportunity to kinda "start over" on life a little bit. Everything's new ya know? Little things like having to find a new place to get your hair cut or even trying to find new places to eat. And of course, don't get me wrong, I am totally going to miss my great friends, family and church. But my sense of adventure is kicking in as I think about all the things I'd like to change about myself or habits... a new start on life. Not like I'm depressed about my life or anything but isn't it great when God hands you a chance to start over. For instance I've been thinking, I'd like to work out more and make more time for practicing my instruments and writing songs and spending more time with God. But then the thought hit me... If I'm not starting that stuff now, I'm probably not going do it out there; just because I'm in a new place doesn't mean that I change on the inside. BUT on the other hand- why wait to start out there? God tells us in scripture that his mercies are new EVERYDAY. So here's to a new begining on life... today. Archie

I've told myself many times that when "this" happens, I'm going to change "that" or start doing "that" differently. And you're hardly ever works that way.

I need to make some changes in my life as well...hopefully today. :)
