Another Chapter


The beginning of a new month....



The beginning of another autumn season....





....and thus you have it....



....the beginning of another school year.










Early-set alarm clocks....





Wake-up showers....




Non-holed shirts and jeans....





Same-old, same-old lunch....









You can't measure their school days....




....for the time has flown too quickly.




It was just yesterday they climbed into the big yellow bus.








I remember those "first days" of kindergarten..... hadn't these babes just come from my womb? How can they be pulled from my arms to start their new adventure?



And now another page turns....






Another map is coloured....












Memories are recorded at the end of a pencil....








Mistakes are sometimes made.....





....some they can erase....




And some mistakes they will not be able to erase.



They might try and cover them up....






But, as time passes, they'll learn from those mistakes.....

....and, before my eyes, somehow,




they'll grow up.





I am thankful that the Lord watches over them....


....and that He neither slumbers nor sleeps (Psalm 121:4).




Although my mind is constant on them, I can't watch over them all the time. I rest knowing my Lord has His hand upon them.



And so turns another page in MY book....


....another page

....another chapter




....and we continue to turn the pages until we reach The End.



And THAT's the day we begin a whole new book, an eternity of never-ending pages.





Yes, today is a new season...



There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven. (Ecclesiastes 3:1)


.... and so begins another chapter.....
