Thankful For A New Start

Just finished talking with a good friend and feeling thankful.  We laughed until we cried.  We covered almost everything under the sun yet kept it real and clean.  Now it's time for me to retire for the night -- BUT not before I thank God for another day and a new start!  Thank You God for both!!

In thinking back over my life, I've come to discover many things: friends are few and life is short so you'd better enjoy it while you have breath.  It's good to have people in your life who make you laugh.  It's great to have genuine support, especially when you're down.  BUT--what's most important is KNOWING that God has your back!  
When the chips are down and there's no one around - God has your back
When friends are few and you feel your cause is through - God has your back 
When you wished that people would stay yet they walk away - STILL God has your back 
Just when you think it's O-V-A (over that is...) - God will let you know "I GOT YOU" and it ain't over unless I say it's over!  This is ONLY the beginning of a NEW chapter --and for that -- I am SO very thankful!

Thank You Lord God, for a new beginning, a new start, and for turning the page into a new chapter instead of ending the book.  Thank You God for another opportunity!  I ask your blessing, protection, and covering over this next chapter, in Jesus' name, Amen!  Turning the page...
