A new identity….

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”  2 Cor. 5:17

In scripture we read that we are gifted a new identity in Christ and we read it as such a wonderful and beautiful gift.  As we (I) approach

the last day of the school year and I will be watching my children move to middle school and high school, I realize that gaining a new

identity,while exciting and wonderful, also comes with trepidation and sadness.  To gain something new we must let go of the old.  We

must move away from what is known and comfortable.  Much like the butterfly busting out of  the cocoon, we are growing and becoming,

but not without some loss.  So, I will choose to acknowledge the losses.  I will embrace what we are giving up in order to move forward

in life.  And then we will each spread our new wings and try them out…I imagine we will each soar in our own unique ways!
