When born into the family of an evangelist, you learn there are helter-skelter type of seasons where events draw near and everything happens at once. But during the peaceful times (such as now) I look back and realize God’s goodness. He has allowed me to travel throughout the country, meet new people, and experience things I never would have dreamt about. As you can tell, life around here isn’t all about work, but mostly mixed with play and fond memories. This was one of many woven into my summer.
Through wet, cold, heat, or sunshine, you cannot keep us away from the racetrack! No, our main purpose is not to see the races (though it’s a huge bonus) but to show Jesus’ love to the race fans. Read more
Did I really expect to find a quote from Tom Sawyer? Maybe I did. And I had another one underlined, but this one struck me more than the other. Maybe I’ll post the second quote later this week, but I want you to take a look at this for a quick second. Read more
Not only can I not wait to tell you all about the new and fantastic books to be found but I also cannot wait to share with you all of my travels! There is nothing better in the world that a long ride with a good book in hand! (I am so sorry to those who get car sick as they read. My heart goes out to you!) There’s something magical about binge reading for a couple hours, and then BAM, where am I? It’s as if I’ve ridden on the wings of eagles and here they have dropped me. My heart tugs me to explore my new surroundings! As in the book I may have just read, new adventures await! What will my eyes see? Algae covered monsters hidden beneath the murky waters of the swamps? Will my mind’s eye see the past lives of those who lived before me in an old historic town? What created beauty of God’s good earth will I envelope myself in? Oh, to smell the saltine breeze of the ocean and hear its crash! I can imagine hearing the great oak trees bend and creek in the wind of the mountains! What awaits me?
God has given us such a special gift in being able to travel, yet this doesn’t just excite wanderlust within me but also a mission. We can reach people whom we would never have a chance to reach and meet before. Whose lives can we touch on our little journeys on this earth? You may be thinking, ” Well, it’s not like I can just get up and travel to wherever on the globe. I’m kinda stuck here in my little corner of the world.” That is fantastic because God has put you in your corner of the world for a great reason. Where you are is your mission field. You can travel to the store, work, or even the backyard, but wherever you are placed, you have a purpose for being there. Find it, darling!
Along with my books, journey with me on my traveling adventures!
