What if we are the kind of people that are always waiting for the next adventure?
What if we are always wondering what is JUST over that next hill? Around that next bend?
What if we get settled and become uneasy?
What if we stop moving, just for a moment? What will happen? What will we find?
People ask where we are from and we tell them where we grew up. But answering the question of where we are from makes us uncomfortable.
People ask how we ended up HERE of all places. I do not know quite what to say.
What made you go to Alaska, they ask. What brought you to West Virginia? How did you pick Northern Minnesota?
So many normal questions that have no easy answers. We often wonder what makes us different. What makes us leave, or stay, or pick what adventure will come next?
Why are we not satisfied with the status quo? Why do we shiver and cringe at the stabililty and normal life that most people have?
Why did God place a Gypsy Spirit in our hearts? A Wanderlust? An ability to have a dream, a wish, a desire, and the motivation to make it happen- without getting caught up in the anxiety, mental blocks, and fear that keep most people from moving forward?
Sometimes I WANT to be that person. But I am not. And I wonder why. I wonder what God was thinking about when he made the Dave and Megan molds? I am not sorry, not for a second. I just sometimes wonder…..What if?
