I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung over at our Five Minute Friday website. This week’s word prompt is “world.” We would love to have you join us.
I just got back from one of my favorite continuing education trips. I love it because when I attended it for the first time, I got to explore a new part of the country I have never been too….Colorado! It has become one of my favorite places in the world. There is something so holy about being in the mountains.
Growing up we didn’t do much traveling. We visited grandparents in Nebraska and visited South Dakota. But I don’t remember many other places we vacationed too. As I have gotten older, I have found myself traveling more and more often.
A few years ago, my sister began the tradition of having a sister’s trip. We have been to Nashville, Chicago, The Black Hills of South Dakota and New York City. This year we will be traveling to Dallas TX. I love exploring and spending this time with my sister as we explore new parts of the USA.
There are so many parts of the world I would love to travel too. On my bucket list, I would love to travel to Germany and visit the Lutheran sites of Martin Luther. I would love to experience Jerusalem and walk where Jesus walked. I also would love to travel to Ireland! Where are some places you hope to visit?
The world is full of so much beauty. God’s magnificent hand is all over it. I only need look at the glorious pictures from Colorado that I took while I was there. God’s creation amazing us as we spotted a moose, an elk and even some baby chicks in Lily Lake. I can’t help but sing “God’s got the whole world in God’s hands.”
Looking back I’ve travelled a lot – Italy, France, Germany, Switzerland, Greece, Albania, Turkey, Spain, Holland, Malta, Cyprus, the US (New York and Florida mainly), Tunisia, Rwanda. But as I get older, whilst I’d like to return to NY to see family and a few other places remain on my wish list, I find myself loving one particular corner of England more and more. And that’s Cornwall. Sometimes it’s how far you travel; sometimes it’s how well. Visiting from FMF #51
I love that last line…yes sometimes it is about how far you travel and other times it is about how well you travel. Thanks for stopping by.
