Recently I have been reminded that even when we are asked to do something all alone, SOMEONE is always with us. We are never really all alone. We navigate life with a PARTNER. Like 2 shoes that can't function properly without the other, we move in PAIRs. New things can be scary and unsettling. Trying new things can be akward. Meeting new friends is hard work and fear can be a very REAL thing.

But new is also GOOD. New things can stretch us to grow. New experiences allow us to see life in a different way. New people can give us new perspective on lingering problems. New friends can make us laugh until we cry.

I pray we will never be too afraid to risk with NEW.

How do you embrace the "NEW" in your life?
