What is your preferred mode of travel?
“It depends” is the answer to most questions,
I heard a Buddhist teacher say and giving a
really good illustration.
SO, what is my preferred mode of travel?
my answer is: IT DEPENDS . . .
a—where am I starting from
b—where do I want to go
c—when do I need to go
d—why do I need to go
e—what modes of travel are available to me
f—what is the cost
Just to see how I could decide
to begin the process:
a. where am I starting from?
I live in the middle of the United States
b. where do I want to go?
• if I want to go to the east or west coast –
an airplane would probably be my choice
or in some cases, a train
• if I want to go to Europe –
an airplane or boat would be my options
• if I want to go to a local attraction or to a state
close by –
I would probably drive a vehicle
HOWEVER, to me,
the best modes of travel,
the least expensive,
the ones always available at my convenience,
and the ones
always ready to take me where I want to go . . .
books AND my imagination!
While I truly enjoy going to places in person
and visiting with family and friends,
I have to say my preferred mode of travel . . .
in the comfort of my own home, in a comfortable chair
with books and my imagination – oh, YES!!!
a work in progress . . . God's grace has brought me through many traumas of varying intensities and I am alive today (both physically & spiritually) because of Him and His work: "For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus"-Philippians 1:6.
My childhood was spent living in many places in the United States due to my family's music or ministry—The Hicks Family, made up of Olan & Barbara Hicks, my younger brothers, Clint & Chuck & me, sang in different combos (put out an album), does so no longer professionally . . . but, visit a family gathering in Searcy & you're bound to hear some foot-tapping sounds (or catch my dad & mom on the road)!
I believe that every moment of each life path (the good & what I perceive as the bad) God works together for my good as His child whether I understand it or not. MUSIC and MINISTRY are still primary aspects of the path God has me walking—so exciting!
Words that have encouraged me since 1980: ". . . giving them a garland instead of ashes,The oil of gladness instead of mourning,The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting So they will be called oaks of righteousness,The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified." Isaiah 61:3
