As sad as it was for both me and my kids who had learned to drive on this beautiful machine, it was also happy and exciting knowing it meant something new was on the horizon.
The end of something is always the beginning of something else. Less than 48 hours later, we were zipping along in our new car. A joy I haven’t experienced in a very long time.

I think that’s something that we ought to hold onto tightly as we pilgrim through new and wonderful spaces towards God’s heart.
