"Even though I often give in to the
many fears and warnings of my world,
I still believe deeply that our few years
on this earth are part of a much larger event
that stretches out far beyond
the boundaries of our birth and death.
I think of it as a mission in time,
a mission that is very exhilarating
and even exciting, mostly because
the One who sent me on the mission
is waiting for me to come home
and tell the story of what I have learned."
~ Henri Nouwen
Wishing safe travels to my friends who travel by road, air, sea, sled, and rail this weekend.
