A New Season…A New Chapter

I can’t believe the summer is over. Well, over in the sense that school has began. The weather will continue to be warm until later in September…unfortunately. πŸ˜‹ While I’m thankful for warm weather, I love autumn. Chilly weather, beautiful trees, sweaters, fashionable scarves, those snuggly fall mornings where you can curl up on the couch and have a cup of hot coffee…with cream.…You get the picture. πŸ€—

With this new season beginning in nature, there’s an all new season beginning in my life.

I’m a senior. πŸ‘©πŸ½β€πŸŽ“ Yep. I can’t believe it. Eleven years of school have flown by so quickly. There are a lot of new emotions coming at me this year. Feelings about childhood rapidly fleeting, thoughts about my future. What on earth am I going to do? There was always another scholastic grade I could depend on before. Now…what?

While many years stretch out before me, I don’t really know what the next chapter will look like. I’m sure it will be a chapter of new experiences, difficult trials, and amazing opportunities, but I still feel some trepidation. What will it all look like?

Thank goodness I’m not the one in charge of my future. God is. Imagine if we had to be in charge of our entire life? That wouldn’t be easy. I’m so glad I have a Heavenly Father that has a plan for my life. He has plans for me that I don’t yet know. Good plans. Plans to prosper me and not to harm me. Plans to give me a future and a hope. I can rest in Him because I know that He knows my story. From the beginning to the end. While there are decisions I will have to make regarding my future, I know that if I trust the One who knows my story, He’ll help guide me and direct me to the next thing. The next sentence in my life will become a paragraph, and that next paragraph of life will become a chapter, and that chapter will be added to the beautiful story He is creating for me. Laura.

So how does all this effect my blog?

It won’t. I want to continue to share my ventures with you all. My thoughts and ideas. My writing tips and stories. Inspirational posts and devotionals! I want to use this website to encourage others and utilize the talents I have been blessed with.

Speaking of blog stuff, I plan to began posting regularly again. I’m not sure if it will be twice a week or once a week. With school starting soon, I’m not exactly sure how much time I’ll be able to invest in Beautiful Things!

Let’s chat!

Are you experiencing any major changes in your life? Are there some tough decisions you need to make? Do you have any exciting things you’re looking forward to this school year?

I’d love to hear about it. Of course, if you don’t want to share anything personal in the comment area, feel free to send me an email through the contact page. It’ll be fun getting to know you better.

Also, are there any posts that you’d like to see here…other than “Echoes of Honor….(*E’hem*)😏

What kind of posts do you enjoy reading.

Let me know!
