The Road – The Call
Greetings Dear Reader,
Even as a child I loved the road. I enjoyed long car trips. We had a VW van and I reveled in riding and sleeping in it I enjoyed the ride, the sights, and the call of the horizon.
I have often reached the place where the road calls me. In some of my stories I write about a drifter whose only goal is the journey. The road calls me now and I will answer for a bit. I will journey south to the place where I grew up. I will take some time to visit family and rest.
The drive will be just as restorative as the visit. I know the road well and the landmarks will remind me of past journeys to and from Georgia. The call of the road is so strong when I am tired and stressed. The call home, to my real home is even stronger.
I will use the solitude of the journey there and back again to think through my future endeavors. I will use the time for prayer and reflection. I will not leave you behind Dear Reader. As always when I follow Christ I will carry you with me.
Christ calls us all to himself. This journey is an effort to grow closer.
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a home owner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
