Lenten Challenge, Day 33: New

When things in life are new, they're always packed full of excitement, aren't they? The birth of a new baby, starting a new job, getting married and starting a life together, making a new friend, visiting a new place. In those moments, things are yet to be discovered. They're fresh and unspoiled. They're perfect.

And then life happens. Imperfection creeps in and you realize that even the best laid plans don't keep a friendship intact, or stop a baby from getting sick. Things get messy.

But when that newness wears off, it uncovers the beautiful mess of something even greater. A deeper love, a deeper confidence...a better you.

Here's to the imperfection in our lives that takes over our perfect plans. Life is so much more fun that way.
