Sometimes we look at sights in nature but don't really see. While hiking in the woods the other day, it became a realization that we need to open our heart and eyes to see the beauty of the simple things in nature with each season. There is so much order and purpose in His creation. God has given us awesome beauty in this world to see and enjoy... if we would but stop to see and feel it. Join us as this blog is about stopping to see the real beauty around touch and feel it... "Through the Lens".

Between Two Worlds

We have been on this roller coaster of achieving a fulltime RV lifestyle for quite some time. Even before our house went on the market, Gerri & I felt we lived between two worlds. It is a strange feeling, being in one world and wanting to be a part of another different world. THEY ARE TWO DISTINCT WORLDS. Though we have maintained our commitments in our work and relationships, we no longer feel a part of this present world. I go through my daily routine, see other people going through there’s and sometimes wonder why. To us, it seems empty and pointless. Although I know for them it is not, but for us, we see a different purpose. We have reached that fork in the road where we have successfully raised our son, with the help of God, and now he is stepping out on his own. To continue this direction, I ask myself why? What is the purpose, what is the achievement, where is the fulfillment? For many people, there is purpose there. For us, there is a freedom to be had, but not a freedom just to be free. A freedom to give of ourselves without the stress of meeting company goals or an indifference to people due to job demands. We long to be free to see this great country, but also free to genuinely meet people, to listen to them from the heart and get to truly know them. This country is full of incredible people with wonderful stories. We cannot wait to start this journey. But for now, we have learned to be content in this state, making the best of it and knowing this too shall pass. We all must live in the present but plan for the future.
