Second Chances (Prompt 17)




Life is a continual journey of second chances, isn’t it? The sun rises, mercies are new and we awake to a new day of opportunity, a fresh start at the doorstep.

Today I offer you a couple of Coffee Shop prompts. Have at them as you will. As always go wherever the muse takes you and feel free to tweak that prompt to suit you …and your muse!


If you could, which moment from your life would you choose to re-live?


If you had a chance to change professions which new profession would you choose? 



A few quotes for you journey to springboard off if you’d rather:

“Because this is what I believe – that second chances are stronger than secrets. You can let secrets go. But a second chance? You don’t let that pass you by.”
― Daisy Whitney

“But it takes so little to help people, and people really do help each other, even people with very little themselves. And it’s not just about second chances. Most people deserve an endless number of chances.”
― Will Schwalbe

“[When it comes to God] We can’t run out of second chances…only time.”
― Robin Jones Gunn

“Gaining hope,
I remember and wait for this thought:
How enduring is God’s loyal love;
the Eternal has inexhaustible compassion.
Here they are, every morning, new!
Your faithfulness, God, is as broad as the day.”

Lamentations 3:21-23 The Voice

    This is my year of beginning again, and this reinforces it. I love that quote in Lamenations, and in one sense, Gunn’s is sobering…….encouraging, but sobering. In light of time running out, I’m very mindful….not just as I age, but a dear friend passed away yesterday–a poet who was very much aware of his life’s brevity (though he was 73). But he was a prolific author and poet, and made the most of time God gave him to write. Thanks for the reminder, Dawn.
