Sharing our Road Trip Adventure

Why do I want to share our dreams, faith, and travel adventure with you?

Because I have fears.

I have a fear that I will gradually forget our grand road trip adventure.

But I have a plan so that I don’t forget.

My plan is to start this blog.

With my words, I can share our travel adventure with you.

With my photos, I can show you our great nation.

Through this blog, you can travel virtually across the USA with us.

In sharing our RV road trip on this blog, not only will I relive our once in a lifetime opportunity
but I will also etch our family’s travel adventure in my mind, soul and heart so I can remember
our grand road trip adventure forever.

I have an even greater fear that I am unable/unwilling to see and follow guiding stepping stones from God.

When we returned home from our travel adventure, I felt as if my faith journey had ended too.

At home, I felt lost.

I didn’t want Gary and I to fall back onto the path of normalcy, but I didn’t feel God’s direction.

I felt as if His guiding stepping stones had sunk beneath ground level.

At home, I wandered for direction.

My early morning wanderings began when I was awakened suddenly.

These awakenings were startling because words swarm in my head and didn’t stop
until I put those words on paper.

Looking back, I can now see that God was still with me.

My path and God’s guiding stepping stones had only been covered underneath

Through the winter, I wandered and didn’t see the stepping stones of feel God’s presence.

But today, I see that Spring has arrived while I wandered, prayed, and waited through fall and winter.

Today, I can see the flowers blooming and hear the birds singing.

But more importantly, I can see stepping stones and a path before me once again.

Not only can I see stepping stones, but I can also feel a gentle breeze and a guiding nudge.

This guiding nudge requires me to face my fears and step on in faith again.

To tackle my fear of forgetting our road trip adventure, I have decided to start this blog.

Being a non-techie, creating this blog is a giant leap of faith because I don’t know anything about blogging.

This leap of faith is so far outside of my comfort zone that I can’t even see home base.

But one thing that I have learned on this faith journey:

Tackling my fears and living outside of my comfort zone makes me feel alive.

What makes you feel alive?
