This morning as I sat in the parking lot at work I saw a sunrise behind me and a night sky before me. Find the little things that make life grand.

“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” - Lamentations‬ ‭3:22-23‬

Non-travel related thoughts: The idea of never being satisfied with God is an odd one. Isn’t He the only one who can satisfy our soul? Yet as I think about how each time I get a taste of God’s glory and goodness I only want more, these words seem to ring true. How blessed am I to serve a Savior who is willing to pour truth, blessing, and life into my soul until kingdom come! (Also, I spelled satisfied wrong. Awkward.)

“As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?” (Psalm 42:1-2)

There’s always time for a cuppa.

I will be honest and say I don’t particularly enjoy traveling. I’m a homebody and being away for a long period of time is draining for me. But I love seeing new places. I love walking on streets I never knew existed, sitting down on a bench to people-watch in an unfamiliar town, finding hidden gems like forgotten bookstores and curio shops. The amazing diversity of this world is just another picture of God’s creativity and His blessing of variety. As I document my travels (though, as a full-time college student and part-time Chick-fil-A employee, my options are fairly limited at the moment), I hope to meet God in a whole new way. Why don’t you join me!
