One day a while back I bought a ticket to Alaska. On a whim.
Today, I'm rushing around all day, jumping on a plane and headed North. I've always wanted to go, just another one of those things I never got around too. One of too many things I never got around to for too long.
Where I get to go today & what I spend my days doing isn't of my concern. I ask to be shown the work, given the guidance and direction for my days, and in turn, for my life.
"Are you going by yourself?" I'm often asked when I talk about where I'm going and what I'm off to do, to which I think 'I'm by myself a lot but I'm never alone.'
When my grandma passed a way a couple of years ago now, I plucked a couple of books off the shelf. One of them was the Prayer of Jabez by Bruce Wilkinson. I'd recommend you read it. It's short. And it'll change your life.
If there's one thing that's for certain it's that my territory has expanded over the past few years. What I do and where I go has been enlarged significantly.
I'm traveling light - carrying just a backpack. When I arrive, I'm renting a car & staying with a friend's relative. I'm taking a camera and a couple of books. I'll drive all around and take a bunch of photos. I'll read, relax, soak it in and be inspired by what I see.
If I'm certain it's going to be anything, it's that it will something new and it will be different than anywhere I've ever been. It will be filled with awe, grandeur, gratitude and quite probably some tears.
See you on the flip side.
