Failure Isn't Final

Last Fall I had completed 35 weeks of training for a half ironman when my Mother was hospitalized for an operation. Things went from bad to worse and when things leveled out, I had to have rotator cuff surgery. Now, with that behind me and my recovery almost complete, I have found the will to begin again. Today, I begin my training plan for the same half ironman I had to cancel last year. There is a song that goes, failure isn't final with the Father. Failure opens doors to start again. And falling only hurts for a season, and starting over brings new life again.

Today, I embark. My hope, my faith, brings new life again.
