Finally Graduated.
Finally wrote something on this blog.
Finally realized my inability to utilize amazing opportunities that God sends my way.

In the past month, I have been from Key West to Seattle and seemingly everywhere in-between. The Lord has undoubtedly granted me safe travels. So I thank those of you who have been praying for me. Traveling the myriad of miles has afforded me abundant time to ponder and enjoy God's creation.

It hasn't been until recently that I have begun to grasp the thorn of the rose due to travelling. I enjoy seeing new places. I enjoy meeting new people. I do not understand people do not enjoy travel. Travelling in this regard is the essence of leaving home. As the idiom goes, home is where the heart is. And the heart, the heart is where the people you long to see.

One last thing for now: don't drink and drive.
'til I write again...godspeed
