Where does truly begin, and where will it take us? Everyone starts somewhere. When will we reach the halfway point (the 50 yard line)? Just maybe, we have passed it. Unlike those who play football, we can’t see our own fifty-yard line. We know that it is out there somewhere, but where? Have we passed it, or are we approaching it? Or, just possibly, are we standing on it? These are questions that may never be answered. Our parents make plans and dream dreams for us, and, we in turn, make plan for our children. However, God has His plans for us as well. “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Life does have a beginning and an end where there is a homecoming. EVERYONE is essential in God’s plan.
