First Day of School

So today I pulled into the parking lot at work and low and behold the lot was full of cars parked and double-parked and I realized that it could only mean one thing:  the kids were back.  The first day of school for most of my life didn't really happen, I was always in school because I was homeschooled, but starting high school the first day of school was exciting because I had never encountered it before.  That lasted the first two years of high school and then I wasn't so excited.  But one thing I always looked forward to was the fresh start of a new year...no matter what had happened the year before (good grades, bad grades, making varsity or not) was behind you...it all began again. 
Now the first day of school reminds me that my year will begin to increase in responsibility and youth group will be kicking off and hopefully kids will start trickling back in the door of the youth room.  Well, not too soon...I am looking forward to a relaxing (haha) time with my little girl come the end of September...I am looking forward to settling into our new house and making it a home, but most of all I am looking forward to starting something new...our family.  I cannot express how very excited I am for this chapter in my life... God is prompting Marty and I to start something new and unknown and it reminds me that God's plans are always so much bigger and better than ours...
So, looking back on that first day of school...I can relate to the uncertainty of a new year, but I can also relate to something new on the horizon...
