I have said it before many times LIFE IS SHORT, ENJOY THE JOURNEY. It has been a dream of mine for some time and now, a goal…. To travel the United States in a Travel Trailer.
I decided to document my journey starting from today.
I was listening to a preacher, and he spoke about the Faith of Bartimaeus, a blind man who pursued Jesus for healing. Bartimaeus had stepped out with Blind Faith literally.
This resonated with me, and confirms that HE wants me to proceed with this endeavor! And it will take Blind Faith to see this one through.
So with that, I proceed, and I will try to listen to My Lord’s direction.
After thinking about the best way to travel, but staying open to the Lord to change and direct all aspects of this Journey, but my vision is to buy a 4 wheel drive type tow vehicle and travel trailer. This combination should be efficient and economical to transport.
Outdoor Photography is one of my passions and creating beautiful images. I will be traveling the country finding beautiful Images that inspire, uplift, motivate and bring peace to individuals.
It is my sincere belief that we all are placed here for a reason, and each one of us has a passion, unfortunately, not all of us are brave enough to follow our bliss.
It is so easy to come up with excuses why something cannot be done. Excuses hold us back from using our God-given potential. Get rid of the excuses in your head, Just Do It!
Ok Before the trip starts what will I need?
- A way to generate income on the road.
- A reliable tow vehicle like an SUV that will be able to pull a trailer
- A Travel Trailer
What about this current job do you like?
- Meeting new people every day and helping clients create their printing/publishing ideas or projects.
- Editing images
What are my personality traits? (the way I see it)
Empathy, caring, upbeat, and positivity.
It is also my belief that everything that happens to us good and bad will be used to accomplish your goals. Our experiences will mold us and shape us if we allow the Lord or the divine to use it for good.
And have Faith Knowing the Lord or the Divine will Come to meet you where we are!
Enjoy The Journey.
The other day I was driving by a cemetery and had a stong feeling that I should stop.
While walking around the grave stones I felt this over whelming sence of love and peace. All the graves were decorated with wind chimes, figurines of angels and other objects even bottles of liquor depicting item that the love one once loved or enjoyed.
Death seems so final to us that are left behind, but in actually our departed love one is at peace and are at rest.
Even though it is difficult for us to say goodbye… We can show love in our own way whether elaborately decorating our love ones head stones or just remembering them fondly. I feel they are with us as we go about our day-to-day life.
One of my favorite poems is by Henry Scott Holland,
All Is Well
Death is nothing at all,
I have only slipped away into the next room,
I am I, and you are you,
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still,
Call me by my old familiar name,
Speak to me in the same easy way which you always did,
Put no difference into your tone;
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effect, without the shadow of a ghost on it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was; there is absolutely unbroken continuity,
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am just waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.
All is well.
