Turn the page, I can’t drive 55

turn the pageSaturday is the best day of the week. I am taking a break from cooking for a party tonight. I have a few minutes while the homemade bread raises so here I am at the keyboard. I am always reflective when I am cooking for a party. I keep menus from my past parties painting memories and the good times celebrating with family and friends. Taking time out of daily troubles of life being with people you love creates the unforgettable journey. These special times are important to round out life, propelling us from our everyday suffering. The destination to  healing could be a short distance. Turn the page from day-to-day life and be in the moment. Celebrate life forgetting about your trials and for the time being re-write the paragraph so the experience promotes restoration.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Can’t Drive 55.”

Inspired by the Matt Hires song. Turn the Page, Album: Take us to the start.

I am second. I will share my experiences, as a child of God, husband to Daniel, father, best friend, brother, son, leader, professor, writer and photographer. My intention for this blog is to be random, with no plan, no list, no direction and no expectations. Very different from how I lived my past life. My journey has been blessed by the mercy and grace of God and unwavering love. I hope you enjoy reading and sharing my experiences of hurts, laughter, discovery, friendships, Christ, and my family. Temenos is a safe circle where you can be yourself with peace of mind. Temenos originates from a Greek word which refers to a universal instinct to create a protected, safe space in which to heal, restore and regenerate yourself. My temenos circle is a place to be still and seek Jesus. It becomes my place to pray, reflect in the word of our Lord to shrink, grow in him, and heal my soul. What is your temenos circle?
