Full circle

Ah.... the journey seems to have slowed down in the past couple of days. It might be the weariness of my recent vacation settling in and making it impossible to move at the pace that I was before. I got right back on the bike, however, and have been around town in the past couple of days. I did break down and use the vehicle today and had not a shred of guilt. We'll see how I weather tomorrow given a full day at work and then off to the YMCA. My first trip back to the "Y" since before vacation. I'm sure it will be a slow pedal home.

We had an incredible time in church this morning where the past, present and future were recognized. God spent both services ministering to people and joining together the generations. The people who were present when the church was founded over 10 years ago were honored during the first service and then we had new members accepted during the second service and a few baptisms were also thrown in. It's great to see how God is building.

Hmmm... where to start. I picked the "Journey Home" because no matter where I travel or stay, it's all included on the journey home. Whether I'm staying at my place and not heading out anywhere my focus is still about "The Journey Home." Of course, there is the home here on earth and often I will write about that but there is also a bigger journey for which I prepare. I hope my many experiences prepare me for the ultimate journey home and that I never lose sight of my real reason for being.

I just completed a journey back to my home town. What a gathering and celebration we had. The community turned 125 years old and hosted an all school reunion and large coummity celebration. I just arrived back by train and am still recovering! More later....
