Graduation Day

DSC_0968

It is graduation day today. There have been weeks of events and ceremonies and celebrations leading up to this, and it’s hard to imagine that it is here. It’s a time of endings and new beginnings, a time of sadness for distances that will come between friends and anticipation of new, lifelong friends to come. When I think back to my own graduation, it’s incredible to think how little I knew about what my life would be like. There are many times in our lives where we will experience those endings/beginnings, and standing at the precipice can be daunting. But we know, as my favorite verse says, “For I know well the plans I have in mind for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare, not for woe! plans to give you a future full of hope.” (Jer 29:11) Even when the endings seem final, we know that there is always another beginning, and we can look through with hope.
