The Birth of Opportunities

"The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction
 and the opportunity to start over
 no matter what my circumstances." 
~Robert Flatt

 From the time we take in our first breath new beginnings never end,
life is full of them like autumn leaves are to the wind.
One phase of our journey reaches a final close,
while yet another passage like a flower will open and unfold.
Each man is a pioneer in the exploration of his own path.
Every chance a gift in progress for the future from the past.
Many endings cross our way as we tread down the streets to home,
yet all the changes before us are simply new opportunities being born.
