Do you remember those old open face fishing reels? It took quite some talent to know just where to put your thumb and just how much pressure to put on the reel when casting and when to apply more force or lessen up the force.
When loved ones pass on into their next journey and purpose, we have a feeling of loss. Obviously the time spent is cherished and non refundable, and worth the effort, but now there is void that can be felt and is very real. All that is left are the lessons, stories and the picturesque moments of a time with a Full Sail.
Time spent is much more valuable now and as the memories flood our minds in ebb and tide, we need to stay focused on the One that makes all of this possible. “Gone where?”, becomes the only question.
A ship passing by in the night, people are in our lives for only awhile and then they sail past the horizon never to be seen by our eyes again but other are welcoming her arrival.

God is a God of new beginnings!
I heard a message recently that stated if you take a step back from your at hand task, slow down and take a look at the design.... He knows no time. Time was made for man.
Each day starts with an opportunity to start over from yesterday.
Each week, is an opportunity to start over from the previous week.
Each month is an opportunity to start over from the month before.
And yes each year..., offers us yet another opportunity to restart our life, direction, influence change in how we make choices, give away some forgiveness and build new trust.
We have to use the platforms we have to make a difference. Even in the midst of a Pandemic.
Do not stop doing good.
Happy New Year
