Tonight I have the urge to hop on a plane and make a trans-Atlantic flight. I am not sure where I would go. Maybe Geneva…visit a pub and have a superb glass of wine and an original piece of Swiss chocolate, walk the streets down to the reformation wall…take the train to familiar routes visiting places with rich memories.
I could go somewhere I have never gone like Rome and experience the rich culture and historic sights. I could go to Israel and “walk where Jesus walked.” O…..and Egypt…..yes, that would be amazing! I would love to taste new tastes, smell new smells and experience the unknown.
What about the eastern world. I have never been really drawn to those, but a beach in Mylasia…visit a friend in the Phillipines and then swing down to Austraila and meet some new mates. O man, what I would do to live this life style. Or would I? OOOO….and I would def go to Northern Ireland to find a husband and of course visit dear friends. And how could I forget Africa….AFRICA!!!!!
When I was living in Geneva this lifestyle mentioned above was so normal…I almost felt abnormal for not hopping to a new country every couple of weeks. But Geneva is so International it makes since! A lady and her husband I worked with litterally took a trip around the world. The went through some company that set it all up for them, plane ticket after plane ticket….country after country. I wonder if I could do that someday with whoever I marry??? What are the chances that we will have that much money and what are the chances that we can take off of work for a year! HA! SMALL SMALL SMALL!
But I have been realizing how much God has blessed me with the desires of my heart here in Plano. Like….WOW! I live in a wonderful apartment all to myself where I can host people (my long term dream!), I have a terrific job were I am set up quite nicely; with a community of people around me that care for me and love me and even call and check up on me during ice storms. I need for nothing.
How sweet it is!
So would I really hop on a plane right now? ummmmm…..probably! But I would be very excited to return home!
Peace and Blessings to you my friends!
