a Lighthouse for the sojourner

More often than not, I seem to be aimless.  Maybe I had a plan.  Maybe I impulsively took a step.

Either way, as I lay my head on the pillow, I wonder if I was diligent or distracted this day.

Guilt drowns me when I reflect on the moments lost to idle time.

My ship too frequently appears off course as I travel this life.

And then I wonder why my days come crashing down.

Looking for answers, I’m always pointed back to the Beacon of Light.

There I find the Truth.

My wanderings are given purpose.

Clarity shines through the fog of chaos and order is established.

Why has God left us on earth?  Is it simply to be saved and sanctified?  No.  It is to be at work in service to Him. (Oswald Chambers)

As I sojourn this life, I long to keep my eyes on the Light.

Staying the course.

Taking the path of purpose.

    I love your photos. So peaceful! Our family travels an hour north to Mackinaw City, where there are several nearby lighthouses, every summer. We go for a weekend; we go for an afternoon. We love being near the water, and the lighthouses are so beautiful.

    Wonderful blog post!

      My grandmother had a beach cabin on the Gulf coast until Hurricane Ike destroyed it (and some of her lighthouse collection). There is something so fascinating about lighthouses. My boys will scream, “Look, a lighthouse!”
