New beginnings

At Hood College, we just completed our first week of classes for the new school year. Many friends are also starting school soon or beginning new jobs.

Fall always brings about new beginnings for many of us, especially as students. Now I may be over-thinking a metaphor, but I find it interesting how fall is the beginning of the leaves falling and many things starting to die. So at the same time, there is an ending and a beginning.

“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted” Ecclesiastes 3:1-2.

Who knows, maybe I am just being a romantic. But the point of this post is that we have to face new beginnings. And when new beginnings occur, we have to let go of the past in order to move forward.
