valuing the travel and the return home.

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.
Ralph Waldo Emerson 

I look forward to sharing so much of our beautiful and even the little bit of the not so beautiful travel adventure to Senegal.  We're so fortunate to have friends like Kristine, Simon and Maggie who hosted us and shared us with this most amazing opportunity.  It was all we hoped for an so much more! For now it is good to be home.  Our transition back via Hagerstown and family Easter was lovely, ideal really.  On this last day of vacation I'm touched by sermon at the service today.  The minister talked about the stones in our lives and what has to be moved away to keep us faithful and connect us to the important things in life.  Vacations and travel give us perspectives and rest that need to be applied upon return.  I'm fortunate to return with a rich appreciation for what I have in my life on Newark-Granville road and will intentionally be working to apply these as we spring in to all that keeps us connected and moving to you and our beautiful communities.

And now it is time to rest....
No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.
