I have always loved the cycle of seasons and new days the Lord lavished on us when he created the world and the way it works. He gives away new chances like they don’t cost him a thing, and they arrive to us as bright and beautiful as the recent freshly-fallen snow. His constant creation of newness drives me to dream of what could be. When I was in college, I was a student to a very special professor. She has since passed away, but she inspired and helped develop a habit in my life that will be a part of her legacy. At the beginning of each semester, she challenged … Read More
