Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

out of the way...

out of the way

When we travel, I take photographs.
This and eating are two
of my favorite reasons to travel.
And of those captured images,
and places found while on a trip,
the most satisfying to me
are those “out of the way”...
not on the travel brochure...
gems of time and space.

So if someone asks me,
“Did you see the 'Crown Jewels'”?
My response is... no, but I did see
the most magnifient beggar/shack/weed...
and I didn't have to stand in a long line
to see something I couldn't even get close to.

"This seems to be
the law of progress
in everything we do;
it moves along a spiral
rather than a perpendicular;
we seem to be actually
going out of the way,
and yet it turns out that we were
really moving upward all the time."

- Francis E. Willard
