There’s a first time for everything.
Sometimes the first time is the most exciting. (Sometimes it’s also the most frightening.)
I got to go with Victoria and Mason on their first field trip.
Neither had been to a pumpkin patch before.
This was an exciting first. For both of them.
There were many new things.
And because they were excited, I was, too.
When they smiled, I smiled, too.
While we can’t repeat a first ourselves, we can accompany somebody else experiencing a first.
After God created the first man and the first woman, I assume he didn’t get bored with every human thereafter. Because with each person, it was their first time coming into the world.
When we celebrate someone else coming to know Christ for the first time, we renew our excitement at knowing him, too.
If there’s a first you need to tackle—and you’re nervous about it—bring an old-timer with you. Not only will it be good for you, but it might be exciting for them as well.
There will be smiles all around.
Here are our three questions of the day:
(1) Is there a pumpkin at your house this October?
(2) Do you remember an exciting field trip that was a first from your own school years?
(3) What’s a first you have experienced with God in the recent past?

What are your answers? Please share in the comments.
(1) No, I gave Victoria my pumpkin to give to her youngest child.
(2) I remember my first helicopter ride with JROTC and also a fun math tournament in Montgomery with our high school Mu Alpha Theta team.
(3) God has been guiding me through the glorious wonder of being a grandmother for the first time this year!
