Well, here we are...the first month of a new year! It’s a new beginning with a fresh start.
The race of 2011 is over. You have crossed the finish line.
Every finish line, however, is the beginning of a new race.
When I was a child, I remember with every race I ran during recess or in P.E., there was a 3-part command to start it. And oh how my heart would “race” as I heard: On your Mark...Get Set...Go! With each part of this command I felt the rush of adrenaline. I remember thinking, “Oh my gosh, am I where I’m suppose to be, am I paying attention...don’t be slow to start, but don’t jump the gun... be ready, but don’t move a muscle until you hear the word ...Go!”
