Friends! I’m back on my side of The Pond after two weeks in Europe. I have so many pictures and stories to share. I kept a travel journal while I was away so I could remember details like the sounds, tastes, and smells of my travels. Over the next several posts, I’ll share about my trip and include entries from my travel journal. Secure your seatbelt and ensure your seat and tray table are in an upright and locked position, because we’re going on an adventure…

I’m something like 30,000 feet above Northeast Georgia. In a plane on my way to Dusseldorf, Germany. I should probably figure out how to spell that. From there, we’ll go to Belgium, then Ireland. Also, this is an 8 1/2 hour flight… I’m so excited, though. A little nervous, but a lot ready to have an adventure. One of the thoughts I had as I boarded a small connector plane to Atlanta earlier was that I hope I never take the view for granted. So many people travel so often and don’t look out the window at the tiny little world below, but I pray I never grow callous or numb to the experience. I pray I never lose a sense of wonder at the world God has made. I pray I never lose perspective over the truth that I am small and insignificant in the grand scheme of things and yet, by God’s grace, He chooses to love me and give me priceless worth. So here’s to adventure! I’ve got my dearest friend Emily by my side and The Lego Batman Movie on my screen.
Lord, help me soak up every moment. It’s all such a wonderful gift.
