That was the easy part. Coming up with a title and then the URL took a little more time.
Now for the first post.
I thought I'd define the key words in my title: journey, adventure, alien. Since my dictionary is still in a box from remodeling days, I will use one of my daughter's children's dictionaries.
Webster's New World Children's Dictionary
- journey-- a trip; an act of traveling from one place to another.
- adventure-- 1 an exciting and dangerous event. 2 an unusual experience that will be remembered.
- alien-- 1 a person from another country. 2 a person living in a country but not a citizen of it. 3 an imaginary being from outer space.
I see life as a journey, an adventurous one at that! I love to travel. Maybe I'll share some of my travel adventures here. Beyond travels to states and countries, I've experienced "travel" in my life in other ways as well. I have gone from one place to another professionally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
At some point on the journey of life, I began to see it as an adventure. I don't know if I would have used the term "dangerous" as in the definition, but I have found myself in dangerous places along my travels.
I don't fit #3 on the alien definition, though there might be some folks who would disagree with me, especially my daughter. I am currently living in the United States and am from the United States, so #1 doesn't fit me either. Politically, I am a citizen of the United States. So, what do I mean? I mean that even though I live in this world, I am not of it. My true citizenship is of the kingdom of God. What does that mean? Simply, that I belong to God. Yet, living it out isn't all that simple. But, this is an introductory post, so I'll stop for now.
Thanks for joining me on this leg of the journey. I hope that you find your journey experience(s) to be adventurous as well.
