Turning the corner, I find myself at a sandy beach along the ocean. Spray from the waves crashing to the shore hits my face. A ball bouncing off my head brings me back home. Children splashing water through the fence are trying to share the cool water with passers by. Returning the ball, I continue on my world tour.
Ahead of me, the bell tower of the church hovers over the treetops. As I get closer, I see the department of tourism. The two proud lions flanking me sit silently, guarding the treasures inside. I’m reluctant to end my voyages to Italy and Hawaii, but my books are needed by some other eager traveler.
Leaving the library, I’m once again on my journey. Bird song floats down from over my head. I find myself in the prayer garden outside the church and settle on the bench. Taking out my prayer journal and pen, I tell God how thankful I am for his wonderful creation that I can enjoy during my time here. But I also thank him for the best journey that is still ahead, when I can see the sites I’ve only read about in His word.
