Well, here we go again.

It’s time to pack my bags again. This time I’m off to the Dominican Republic with World Vision. My wonderful family has allowed me to share my gift of photography with others and I’m very grateful for them allowing this… Especially my son Adam who will be turning FIVE on March 21st.

This map represent where I’ve been and where I’m going. I thought about putting a, where I would like to go… but, I didn’t.

It’s funny… When I was a child, my mother would always say, “If it be the Lords will, we’ll see you later.” Or, “I’m planing on seeing you if it be the Lords will.” I suppose she has this Bible verse on her mind when she says it…

13 Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.”
14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.
15 Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.”
James 4:13-15

I find it funny that I think of this only when I have big travels but shouldn’t this include everyday? It’s almost like only praying to God for the BIG things and thinking He wants little or nothing of the small things in our lives. How arrogant we can be somethings.

So, having grown older and wiser I would like to say, “If it is the Lord’s will,
I will do this or that on the map this year and everything in between”

LORD, I don’t know where this is going or how it all works out but lead me Lord into the path that never fails.

I hope to be able to blog while on my trip, but I know that it’s not always possible to do so.

Now I’m off to pack and gather the few things I need before the 19th.
