What's Next?

"He did not weaken in faith when he considered his own body, which was already as good as dead... No distrust made him waver... being fully convinced God was able to do what he had promised" Rm 4.

Those words are about Abraham and will hopefully be true of me as I move forward. Last evening, being worn out from the previous night's short sleep, I was flipping channels between The Simpsons and what seemed to be a remake of the classic Ten Commandments film. Saw part of it - the plagues and the sea crossing (overly dramatic, of course) and heard Moses push the people forward. "Don't look back."

If we do look back, it should be to gain thankful inspiration for today and tomorrow. Fear, regret or "longing for the good old days" isn't usually helpful. Older people need Abraham's example.

Toni and I are moving on to a different future. No longer focused on kids at home. Now two are officially launched. What does God want to do with us next? It's a new day!

We will, however, bring lots of wonderful people with us. A great blessing was having so many at our open house, including some special ones from the Taylors Falls area. "Not looking back" does not mean burning bridges. Relationships are SO important!
