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

not nine lives...

not nine lives

Our journey of life is a circle.
We begin at birth and we travel first
through a stage of physical and mental awareness
in an age of relative innocence.
In time, we enter the world of grown-ups
and set out to fulfill personal goals
and to find our niche as we experience this world of men.
Finally through reflection we turn inward
and seek meaning to all we have experienced
through the choices we have made...
the sadness and the joy.
Our focus shifts from the physical to the spiritual.
Eventually we return to our starting point.
All of what happens next is dependent on one choice.
This can be made anytime while we journey on this circle of life.
The earlier we decide will help determine
the source of guidance and purpose
for the rest of our earthly journey
so it wise to make the correct choice soon rather than later.
It is, however, never too late while still on life's circle,
a simple acceptance of the gift of grace from our Father.
Eventually we will all enter (one place or another)
the never ending journey of eternity.

“The perfect journey is circular...
the joy of departure and the joy of return.”

- Dino Basili
