A Door Closed is Another Door Open…

“When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.” – Alexander Graham Bell

Look without Regret

Look Without Regret


“God enters by a private door into every individual.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knock and the Door will Be Opened

Knock and the Door will Be Opened

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.” Matthew 7:7-8

A Cup of New Beginnings

The cup

Of life,

Stories told of

Love and strife.

All things

Pass through

And welcome,

Life anew.

The saucer

Of life,

Embracing the cup

Of love and strife.

A balancing act

To engage the fact

That all things past

One day

Leave way


New beginnings

Which ebb and sway

For life anew.

A Cup of New Beginnings

An additional thought for the day:

He has made everything beautiful in its time.  He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live. That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil – this is the gift of God.  I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it.  God does it so that men will revere him.  Ecclesiastes 3:11-14
