Turn the page and commence

Written by on June 6, 2012


This week, my kind and gentle daughter Emily graduates from David Douglas High School. I’m so proud of her! She’s persevered through all kinds of obstacles to burst through the ribbon at the finish line.

Graduation is often called “commencement.” How awesome is that? It’s not over. It’s just getting started.




What if the end of each chapter with Jesus is the beginning of an exciting new one? What if the miraculous is waiting for you as you bravely follow His Spirit? Can you picture Jesus standing at your side right now, urging you to turn the next page?

Celebrate with me the end of an era as my last child begins the adventure of her life. And commence your own adventure with Him.

    I can see Jesus standing beside me and
    holding my hand, and I can see him holding
    your hand Lynn, and Emily’s. Faith has to
    have something to believe in. These pictures
    were not always a part of me. Faithful Jesus
    has lead me to this place, and He will lead us all past the obstacles to His smiling face,
    and open arms. I thank the Lord today for
    taking Emily to this ribbon, and to all the
    others. Thank you Lynn. Jeannie

    Commencement. Yes, though graduation is the recognition of the completion of some great effort, and that completion is just the beginning of new opportunities.
    May God give us the strength to continue to grow in Him. “For just as the branch cannot bear any fruit unless it shares the life of the vine, so you can produce nothing unless you go on growing in me.” May those new opportunities allow us the privilege of growing in Him.

      Susan, you always have the wonderfullest comments! I pray we stay connected to the life of the vine, Christ Himself. Glad His life is ours. I think I’ll continue to grow till forever. Glad you look forward to the same.
