It’s FRIDAY!!!!! YAY!! This week has felt like such a long and slow week..and Monday was a holiday..weird. Onto the word.
VISIT. I am finding this month that every topic and every link-up is related. Last week in NAS we blogged about goals and words for 2014. A few weeks ago in Five Minute Friday the word was GO! It seems like everything is bringing me to the one thing I can’t wait for this year…and that is my trip to Europe. 10 years and counting I’ve been waiting to VISIT all the places I’ve learned about in school and seen in movies.
Just yesterday I had a social with the people I will be traveling to Greece with and one of the older students traveling with us said she loves to travel because it makes the history books come alive…and that is what I am looking forward to the most. Visiting all the things I’ve read about and learned about that seemed so abstract and unreal and let’s face it BORING when I was learning about it growing up…that there was noway that they could really exist…but wait they do exist in a place that I’ll be visiting. It almost seems surreal.
To visit the POPE and where many Popes before Francis lived and preached the gospel to millions of people that pass through the vatican…to learn more about the church that I love in person. To stand and visit the place that not even a month before I arrive where the only Pope, John Paul II, I ever knew until I was 19 years old be made a Saint…it’s so surreal….it’s the only word I can think of right now.
