This message gives another way to view changes in our lives. As I have stated in the summary it is a chance for another new beginning in our life or a time to make a positive change that we may need in our life.
ANOTHER NEW BEGINNING
Another new beginning is like going
around a mountain and returning to the
same place you started and going around
the mountain again.
For some of us, when we see that we are
back to square one, or back to that beginning
point we interpret it as some kind of failure or
defeat on our part. But I do not believe that to
be the case. You see, we can go around that same
mountain, or in other words, pass through the same
experiences and see everything with a whole new
perspective. I call this another new beginning.
Try looking at it this way. Once I came to the
bottom of a grassy knoll that soon inclined into a hill.
The hill side was covered with rocks of many colors
and sizes. Off to the side there was a stream of water
and I picked up one of the rocks. I threw it into the water.
As I heard the splash of the water I was reminded of a
special moment in time I had spent with my son. That
child now having went on to Heaven made it even
more special. This caused many thoughts to come
to my mind. These thoughts formed into ideas and
dreams that could perhaps bring some well needed
changes about in the journey of my life. Thoughts that
could also bring changes about to others.
As I continue to walk on, I see some trees.
Depending on the season of the year, I see the trees
with a different perspective. One time in the season
of mid summer the trees were in full bloom. The cows
grazed the grass and grabbed the leaves off of the
branches of the tree. This caused poetry to form within
my being. I wrote a poem called Destiny's Choice.
Depending on the age of the trees, I can see with
another point of view. Some years later I come to the
same mountain and instead of just the rocks and trees
I could see a beautifully built house. The same rocks
there and new trees planted on the land. Another
new beginning was starting for me.
The point in my message here is stated above in that
these repeated incidents in our lives form new ideas and
dreams that could bring about needed changes in our journey.
Changes that make us better people. Changes that give us
a better attitude and make a nicer world for us to live in
Do not be discouraged when you continue to come
to the same experience over and over again. Even if it is
unpleasent I have found that there is something happening
to bring about a good and perhaps long needed change in my
