Have you ever packed a suitcase when you didn’t know where you were headed? Have you ever taken off on a car trip without planning your final destination, just drove and drove until you stopped? I have, and hope to again someday. It is a remarkably untamed, unplanned, and unpredictable feeling of an adventure. Scary at the outset if you are a planner, but sometimes just what we humans need to let go of control a little.
One day, when God calls me home at a time when He knows is best, I will be headed off on one of those grand adventures, not really sure what it will be like, but definitely sure that if Jesus is there, it will be amazingly great. And until that time, life is such a gift, and I’m going to try to love, and encourage, and enjoy, and see, and treasure as much as I can with God’s grace.
“You’re packing a suitcase for a place none of us has seen;
A place that has to be believed to be seen…
Walk on, walk on…what you got, they can’t deny it, can’t sell it or buy it…..walk on.”
(“Walk On,” U2, All That You Can’t Leave Behind)
“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him.” – 1 Corinthians 2:9
May God bless all of your life’s journeys and adventures with His love and mercy. Slainte, Lisa
