Road Trip

Today is one of those days that I just want to take off and drive. Just hop in a car and go on a long road trip, not even knowing where but just heading somewhere. To go on an adventure, to see the the wonders of God by getting away slowing down and taking it all in. The Grand Canyon, the Rockies Mountains, the Great Lakes, and so on. I would call it a road trip to nowhere. Just to love life and meet people, and to reconnect to my God. I starting to think that we see God the best when we slow down and really look for Him, even though he is always right there we often can't see him, until we slow down. So I think I will take a road trip to nowhere, and see my God though the beauty of His Nature and Hie people.

A Life Lived Well

Today I find myself thinking much about life. I ask myself what does it mean to live well and to love well. What is the meaning of life, and why do I find myself always asking if I am living and loving well. For so many it is the questions of life that we find so hard to answers. Some turn to God, or that which they believe to be god for the answers. Others turn to, people, or nature, or philosophy, while others turn to science, and I could go on and on and on. But it is the questions of life that calls them. Deep down inside we want to know why we are here, what is our purpose and what happens next. And today these same questions invade my mind. I want to know if God is pleased with me? I want to know if I have loved others well and if I am living my life well. I find myself praying to God and asking Him to help me make a difference in the lives of others. To bring a smile to someones face. To make someones life better today. To give me the ability to give of all I have to enhance the lives of another. Today I choose to live my life in a way that pleases God and helps others, so today I feel I have lived well.
