A New Day, Thank You Mr. Buble’!

“It’s a new dawn

It’s a new day

It’s a new life

For me…” 

–Michael Buble’

Ahhh…the soothing sound of Michael Buble’ encouraging me with his smooth, buttery voice that it’s a new dawn, a new day…

However, when I wake up each morning, I think to myself “It’s a new dawn. It’s a new day…” and then I attempt to get my aching self out of bed and wonder if someone is playing a cruel joke on me.  What in the world? Did someone spike my water with something to make every joint in my body ache?

The longer I am on this earth, the more I realize how much I didn’t think about turning 50 or what life would be like once the “chicks” left the “proverbially” nest.  I guess maybe I didn’t think about it because my parents made it look easy. 

Over 50 and an empty nester, with some menopausal issues thrown in and this  “new life”  is totally not what I expected!  

After a brief interlude of self-evaluation, I decided my “new dawn, new day, new life” attitude needed to be as smooth and buttery as Michael’s voice.  

Here’s what I discovered:

New dawn– Give God the first light.  Pray, read Scripture and quietly listen.  Let the Holy Spirit speak to me in the first light of the new dawn.  Let Him guide and direct.

New day-As this new day unfolds remember to thank God for it.  It’s a new day, I am determined not to live my old yesterday in the new day.  What is past, is past.

New life-Don’t settle for the aches and pains, past hurts and disappointments.  God has given this season, this “new life”, to be taken advantage of.  Do it!  

So for me, I will continue to listen as Mr. Buble’ sings his tune with the mission impossible background music “It’s a new dawn, It’s a new day, It’s a new life, For me…” and forge into the next half a century of  empty nesting and menopausal mishaps with a renewed attitude.  

A New Dawn

Published by Kim Blain

I am an ordinary woman, living an ordinary life, raised an ordinary family with the help of an ordinary husband and an extraordinary God. My desire is to fulfill God’s purpose for my life. I have always had the desire to learn from God’s Word and apply it my life. I speak with integrity, honesty and grace splashed with a little humor. I am down to earth, easy to understand and relatable. I aspire to encourage the Body of Christ to cultivate a heart of hope in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The beautiful state of Montana has been my home for most of my life and I enjoy small town living. I live in a wonderful community and I am thankful we were able to raise our three children there. Besides writing and speaking, I enjoy watercolor painting and using my creative talents to bless others through art. My greatest blessings include my husband of over 30 years and my children. Things I love: pink, raspberries and cream, and going for a drive in the countryside. Things I don’t love: orange, liver and onions, and rush hour.
